Strong Points

Good athlete with body control. Has quick feet, loose hips, can turn, run and transition smoothly. Has a fairly good jam at the line, can play press coverage versus shorter routes and has good mirror skills. Very alert in zone, keeps good position and has good receiver awareness. Has outstanding ball skills and very good hands. Willing hitter.

Weak Points

Has a narrow, lean frame with little growth potential. While he is quick, he lacks long speed. Not big or physical enough to move to safety.

The Way We See It

This player has interesting tape and he makes a lot of plays, but his lack of top-end speed will hurt him in the draft. Might not run faster than 4.58. Stribling has good cover skills and excellent ball skills. He shows very good mirror skills versus shorter routes and has the suddenness required to stick with receivers. His lack of long speed versus deep routes and while in pursuit also shows up. I see him as a late-round guy who will be tough to cut because of his instincts and ball skills. Probably not better than a No. 4 corner in the league.
