Mike Hampton DB South Florida Draft Profile

Strengths
  • 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.
  • Attacks the ball with authority, with quick read-and-react ability. Willing and physical tackler, flashes toughness and aggressive nature vs. the run.
  • Willing and successful blitzing off the edge. Consideration for a move to safety with a combination of range and sure tackling.
  • Good strength to tackle. Plays with high energy and is a tough-minded overachiever.
  • Extremely aggressive to come up and put his body in traffic to make tackles.
Weaknesses
  • Has suspect instincts in coverage and needs to show better pre snap recognition.
  • Lacks the recovery speed to catch receivers if he waits for them to arrive.
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • Vulnerable to big plays trying to bait the quarterback.
  • Needs to get stronger. Too easily lost in the trash. Not a sudden athlete and shows body stiffness when attempting to quickly redirect.
