Strong Points

Excellent athlete with speed, body control, quick feet and change of direction. Cocky attitude on the field. Very competitive ... wants to shut receivers down. Has not given up a TD pass in 24 games. Excellent press cover guy. Has the strength to re-route receivers. Very good ball reactions and hands. Teams seldom try to attack him. Good run-support player and a sure tackler. Very quick in transition.

Weak Points

Can get caught out of position at times. No career interceptions (teams don't throw at him). Lacks ideal corner height. Fast but not a 4.40 type.

The Way We See It

Third-year sophomore entering the draft. This guy loves to play. Takes pleasure in shutting down top receivers. Is best as a press cover guy with a strong jam and excellent mirror skills. Very competitive. Get anywhere near the red zone and he is on his man like glue. Very good in off and zone. Reacts very well to the ball in the air. As quick as there is breaking on the ball. Will come in and start right away for any team in the NFL. Should be one of the first two corners drafted.
