Strong Points

Has the height, length and speed NFL coaches love for corners. Plays fast and has a burst. Is best as a man to man cover guy. Has a good jam and can mirror receivers. Very smooth athlete who can pedal, turn and transition. Can play off and zone but not nearly as well as press. Has very good ball skills and hands.

Weak Points

Has a lean frame and needs to get bigger and stronger (only 10 reps of 225). Not aggressive in run support and needs to become a more physical tackler. Needs to improve his off and zone coverage skills.

The Way We See It

Has very god raw talent but he is still a work in progress. Needs to get bigger and stronger and become more confident when playing off and zone. If he just had to play press he would be a star. Because of his weaknesses he may not be ready to start as a rookie but he should make a very good third corner while he is learning and developing. Corners with his natural traits are hard to find.
