Nate Hobbs CB Illinois Draft Profile

Las Vegas Raiders Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 5 - Pick Number: 167 (LV)
Strengths
  • Good agility and balance when shadowing his target. Competitive player.
  • Good strength to tackle. Plays with high energy and is a tough-minded overachiever.
  • Stout and feisty. Will engage, shed and securely wrap the ballcarrier. Very fluid hips, backpedal and change-of-direction agility.
  • Has at least adequate straight-line speed and good balance, fluidity to change direction.
  • Savvy cover skills to recognize and anticipate routes. Understands what's coming and has good ball skills.
  • Has good foot quickness and short-area burst to work well in tight areas.
  • Can deliver the big hit and isn't afraid to jump inside to slow the ball.
Weaknesses
  • Willing but not threatening tackler. Doesn't have the quick-twitch reaction when he gears down to rebuild to top speed. More instinctive than explosive.
  • Vulnerable to big plays trying to bait the quarterback.
  • Undisciplined, with inconsistent tackling technique, and does a poor job finishing in space. Suspect ball skills and can be eliminated from the play by a single blocker.
