Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Hugely experienced and acclaimed corner - played on nearly 2500 snaps for TCU while putting up a career QB rating when targetted of just 56.3
  • Despite small stature has managed to play all over the defensive backfield - played in the slot, in the box but mainly on the outside as a traditional corner
  • Very solid tackler who confidently wraps up and gives it all despite size limitations in the running game - experience developed from him playing safety in high school
  • Anticipation skills and explosive, downhill burst could make him a star in a zone-based scheme.
  • Changes directions with ease and has the frame to hold up at any spot in the secondary.
  • Major football bloodlines nephew of Pro Football Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson
  • Made Bruce Feldman's Freak's List - ranked #57. He wrote, "He’s a good player, but what he lacks in height, he makes up for with explosiveness. He vertical-jumped 42 inches and broad-jumped 10-8. His 40 time: 4.30. He has also back-squatted 605."
  • Has the high football IQ and awareness to play all over the defensive backfield - has a great understanding of zone schemes
  • Makes up for his shorter-than-ideal arm length with a huge vertical jump and explosiveness
  • Has more of a slot receiver skill set, but with more and more small, quick receivers emerging as No. 1 threats, is the kind of quick-footed cover man who can counter those kinds of pass catchers.
  • Hodges-Tomlinson can flip his hips and run, with elite top-end speed and ball skills to make plays at the catch point
  • He’ll line up in press at times, where Hodges-Tomlinson has a quick and powerful punch. His ball skills are impressive, and he plays with an extremely confident and competitive demeanor.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Very small smurf style corner stands at just 5-8 and weighing in at 175lbs. Wasn't even asked to go to the Senior Bowl because the selectors regarded him too short to get drafted
  • Has the shorter arms you would expect for a player of his size - with a limited catch radius
  • A little grabby at times as he tries to make up for his size disadvantage
  • Making the tackle against bigger backs is a potential issue
  • Is too often a little aggressive and gets caught peaking into the backfield
  • Doesn’t bring enough physicality, as he seems unsure moving downhill as a run defender and doesn’t deliver much pop as a tackler
  • Was an outside corner at college but pro teams will view him as a slot-only guy and won't trust him on the outside due to height issues
Scouting Report: Summary
Tre'Vius Hodges-Tomlinson is the kind of player who would be a high first-round prospect if he was a couple of inches taller. He's extremely athletic with the deep speed required for the position and has both excellent man and zone cover skills and has been rewarded with a huge array of awards as a result - including the Jim Thorpe award (for the best college DB in the nation) in 2022. Unfortunately, Hodges-Thomlinson isn't a couple of inches taller, he's only 5-8 (maybe even 5-7!) and so some teams may remove him from their boards just for this.

Despite the obvious size concerns there is undoubtedly a role for him at the next level - he'd make a great starting slot cover guy in the right defensive scheme. He represents value as a third-round selection in the 2023 NFL draft.

*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.
