College Combine Results
Strengths
  • Possesses good straight-line speed, fluid hips to turn and run, and explosiveness out of his breaks. Good vision and anticipation as a free safety.
  • Strong hands to make plays on the ball, effective blitzer who shows well-coached technique and awareness.
  • Transitions well from coverage to close on the ball. Strong hands, quick reactions for the interceptions.
  • Good vision and anticipation for zone coverage. Good hand-eye coordination and leaping skills.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • Doesn't look comfortable in reverse and can't be trusted in man coverage on an island - sloppy transition and is not explosive.
  • Needs to get stronger. Too easily lost in the trash. Not a sudden athlete and shows body stiffness when attempting to quickly redirect.
  • Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
  • Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
