Strengths
  • Aware in the red zone, stays on the back line to take away fade throws. Capable of making quarterbacks pay for late throws.
  • Reads the QB and gets good breaks on the ball. Bigger hitter than his slight frame implies. Closes quickly and generates explosion.
  • An athletic but narrow-based corner with a lean frame,
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Comes off the edge on run blitzes regularly. Gives effort to wrap and drag down bigger backs.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to get stronger. Too easily lost in the trash. Not a sudden athlete and shows body stiffness when attempting to quickly redirect.
  • Has tense ankles and hips with choppy footwork when attempting to redirect and doesn't always look natural changing directions.
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • NFL quarterbacks may take advantage of his aggressiveness in man and zone to eye up short routes and go over the top
  • Not enough hip fluidity to adjust to topnotch NFL route runners.
