  • Trusts his eyes with very good awareness. Has very good reaction skills to break quickly on the ball.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • A coordinated athlete with good footwork and balance. A heady cover player with above-average ยท feel and anticipation in space.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Struggles to break down in space and can be a liability against the run at the second level.
  • 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.
