Strengths
  • A coordinated athlete with good footwork and balance. A heady cover player with above-average ยท feel and anticipation in space.
  • Trusts his eyes with very good awareness. Has very good reaction skills to break quickly on the ball.
  • Alert defender for zone coverage, showing good understanding of route progressions occurring behind him and a quick burst downhill to break on underneath passes in front of him.
  • Aware zone cornerback who is also adept in man coverage, flashing physical hand punch at the line and straight-line speed to stay with receivers downfield.
  • Savvy cover skills to recognize and anticipate routes. Understands what's coming and has good ball skills.
Weaknesses
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
  • Fails to maintain inside technique in man coverage. Not a press corner.
  • 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.
  • Has a high backpedal and loses a step in transition. Plays with adequate speed but there are concerns about his ability to handle the truly explosive speedsters of the NFL.
  • Struggles to break down in space and can be a liability against the run at the second level.
