Strengths
  • Tough in run support and works hard to get off blocks. Hard-nosed player who attacks the run and doesn't back down.
  • Good strength to tackle. Plays with high energy and is a tough-minded overachiever.
  • Has at least adequate straight-line speed and good balance, fluidity to change direction.
  • Attacks the ball with authority, with quick read-and-react ability. Willing and physical tackler, flashes toughness and aggressive nature vs. the run.
  • Aware zone cornerback who is also adept in man coverage, flashing physical hand punch at the line and straight-line speed to stay with receivers downfield.
Weaknesses
  • 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.
  • Questionable technique and he gets lazy with fundamentals, sometimes getting high in his backpedal and will breach the coverage call seeking flashy plays
  • Vulnerable to big plays trying to bait the quarterback.
  • Undisciplined, with inconsistent tackling technique, and does a poor job finishing in space. Suspect ball skills and can be eliminated from the play by a single blocker.
  • Lacks instincts with shaky awareness, is overaggressive and too often bites on fakes and misdirection.
