Strengths
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • An athletic but narrow-based corner with a lean frame,
  • Changes directions with ease and has the frame to hold up at any spot in the secondary.
  • Rare hand-eye coordination and agility, vision and third gear to make a living in the return game.
  • Always seems to find the ball quickly enough to at least get a hand on it. Not afraid to stick his nose into traffic against the run despite his size.
Weaknesses
  • Holds the ball loosely. Inconsistent in run support. Average tackler
  • NFL quarterbacks may take advantage of his aggressiveness in man and zone to eye up short routes and go over the top
  • Not fully consistent on making the interception in front of receivers. Best lined well off the line of scrimmage due to a high, stiff backpedal.
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • Needs work on backpedaling to prevent defenders from getting behind him.
