Strengths
  • Is a bit of a cornerback-safety teener with only average size, speed, and length, but gets the most out of his ability and works hard to improve his game.
  • Can deliver the big hit and isn't afraid to jump inside to slow the ball.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Has smooth body control with the fluid ability to plant and redirect in any direction. Plays fast and decisive, arriving to the play with fierce intentions.
  • Transitions well from coverage to close on the ball. Strong hands, quick reactions for the interceptions.
Weaknesses
  • Not great in man coverage. Does not have elite speed and loses speed/gears down while turning.
  • Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
  • Has suspect instincts in coverage and needs to show better pre snap recognition.
  • Lacks the timed speed to mirror and maintain contact downfield. Loses the ball on slow-developing plays and has a tendency to reach and grab when he gets antsy.
  • Takes poor angles on the ball and lacks the pure speed to chase down the ballcarrier.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
