Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Too often gives too much of a cushion while playing off his man, and it becomes especially problematic since he’s not a particularly willing tackler.
- Neither his size nor his straight-line speed would be considered elite
- Can leap but his size will be detrimental in box-out situations. Bites on play-action and isn't always in tune with rest of secondary.
- Short stature will hurt him in jump-ball situations against taller, stronger NFL receivers.
