Strong Points

Started since midway through his freshman year. Excellent corner size and strength. Alert and instinctive. Asked to do a number of things in the Colorado scheme and he does all well. Can play inside or outside. Quick reacting in run support and a consistent tackler. Has played on special teams and played well. Had an excellent Combine workout and ran better than expected.

Weak Points

Plays the shorter routes well but don't always see his timed speed when covering receivers deep. Doesn't consistently attack in run support and can tackle high.

The Way We See It

Very good college corner with versatility. Has lined up wide and over the slot. Has also been used to blitz when lined up as a slot corner. Might also be able to play safety. He is an aggressive player with strength and pop. Has coverage skills in both man and zone. Shows top instincts and is very alert. Is seldom fooled. His versatility will get him on the field very quickly as a rookie, be it corner, slot corner or safety.
