  • Very aggressive attacking receiver blocks and tackles like a safety.
  • Transitions well from coverage to close on the ball. Strong hands, quick reactions for the interceptions.
  • Attacks the ball with authority, with quick read-and-react ability. Willing and physical tackler, flashes toughness and aggressive nature vs. the run.
  • With his length, athleticism, and natural ball skills, Duck will be highly valued by press cover teams and could earn a top 100 pick.
  • He’s also very good in zone coverage, showing a great understanding of routes and the ability to close quickly.
  • Has a nice blend of length, speed, and quickness. He’s at his best mirroring routes underneath, showing fluid movement skills and the ability to change directions on a dime.
  • Takes accurate angles to the ballcarrier. A strong, aggressive tackler and doesn't back down against the run.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Duck runs well, but Duck doesn’t have elite recovery speed.
  • Tends to play conservatively and give too much cushion when playing off.
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.

*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.
