Scouting Report: Strengths
- He’s a better tackler than his size might suggest.
- Fluid mover with decent speed and his length allows him to cover effectively downfield
- Instincts are outstanding, and Pope does an excellent job in route recognition.
- Trusts his eyes with very good awareness. Has very good reaction skills to break quickly on the ball.
- Can get up on the line of scrimmage and deliver a solid punch early in routes, then use that quickness to shadow, or back off and close quickly when the ball comes out
- He’s tall-framed with long arms to match. With his powerful hands, straight-line speed, and fluidity in his hips, turning and chasing downfield shouldn’t be a problem.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Gets sloppy with his backpedal when playing off-man and seems to lack the instincts to close on the ball.
- Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
- Grab-and-drag tackler who will struggle to make plays against running backs, and he’ll be susceptible to some catch-and-run plays against bigger receivers.
