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.
