Strong Points

Height and length. Good to very good athlete with loose hips and quick feet. Runs very well. Has experience in man, zone and off. Can be a very good press corner at the next level. Tracks the ball well and is able to get his hands on it. Adequate transition.

Weak Points

A bit of a strider and, like a lot of tall corners, he needs to improve his footwork. Has a lean frame, needs to add strength and bulk. Not a top run support player and tackler, almost never attacks the run but rather waits for it to come to him.

The Way We See It

NFL clubs are always looking for tall corners with length and speed. Witherspoon fits the bill but he is raw. Needs to get stronger and add bulk as well as improve his footwork and run support. He is not ready to play at this time, but has upside because of his natural traits. Will come in as a fourth or fifth corner and may eventually ascend to a 3, but he has to become a more physical player. He does not have special teams potential at this time, so it will be difficult for him to dress on Sunday while he is developing.
