Strengths
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Savvy cover skills to recognize and anticipate routes. Understands what's coming and has good ball skills.
  • A coordinated athlete with good footwork and balance. A heady cover player with above-average ยท feel and anticipation in space.
Weaknesses
  • Fails to maintain inside technique in man coverage. Not a press corner.
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • Has tense ankles and hips with choppy footwork when attempting to redirect and doesn't always look natural changing directions.
  • Struggles to break down in space and can be a liability against the run at the second level.
  • Lacks the recovery speed to catch receivers if he waits for them to arrive.
