Strong Points

Good size for a corner with long arms. Has very good play speed and overall athleticism. Plays fast and is explosive with very good jumping ability. Plays with a cockiness that says "challenge me." Has a quick, fluid pedal and turn and can transition quickly. Will support the run and is a good tackler. Has played some offense and is used to returning kicks. Excellent coverage skills and ball skills.

Weak Points

Can have a tendency to give too much cushion and get a bit lackadaisical at times. This will cause him to give up some plays that he normally would stop.

The Way We See It

Hargreaves is a third-year junior and a three-year starter. He has the traits needed to be a top cover corner in the NFL. Can play press or zone equally well. Gets and keeps good position and plays the ball equally well. Has excellent hands and ability to track the ball. Is very willing in run support, can shed and is a good tackler. He plays the game with a cockiness that is a good thing. Very sure of his ability. He will challenge receivers and has fun playing the game. Will be a high pick and should come in and start as a rookie.
