Ky'el Hemby DB Southern Mississippi Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Does a very good job of reading the eyes of the quarterback and reacting with good field awareness and ball skills.
  • Is a bit of a cornerback-safety teener with only average size, speed, and length, but gets the most out of his ability and works hard to improve his game.
  • Keeps the ball and man in front of him in zone and might be a candidate to convert to safety.
  • Has a solid frame with a strong lower body and much improved bulk. Fluid and rangy with the coordination and loose hips to quickly change directions.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to improve his footwork and balance in coverage. Transitions out of his backpedal too early and doesn't look natural moving in reverse.
  • Too hands-on downfield and has suspect instincts.
  • Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
  • He is very disruptive at all levels of the field, and his versatile experience will be enticing, but a lot of teams will see more tweener traits than versatile ability.
  • Not consistent with his footwork, is a bit choppy in transition and is slow to find the ball on deep routes.
