Strengths
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • 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.
  • Very good athleticism and flexibility. Has plus speed for the position and a second gear with good recovery speed to make up for missed plays.
  • 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.
  • Should excel as a zone defender because of his closing speed to wrap receivers after the catch.
Weaknesses
  • Somewhat small, will give up catches to big receivers even when he has tight coverage. Does not consistently deliver a stout chuck in press coverage.
  • Struggles to break down in space and can be a liability against the run at the second level.
  • Lacks ideal size and frame with limited measureables and short arms that render him helpless against bigger receivers.
  • Runs with the ball exposed. Has boom-or-bust qualities.
  • Can leap but his size will be detrimental in box-out situations. Bites on play-action and isn't always in tune with rest of secondary.
