Strong Points

Very good size for a corner with long arms. Has the quickness and suddenness required to play corner in the NFL. Tracks the ball well with good ball skills and hands. Can play press, off, or zone. Alert in zone and looks to help out when free. Has smooth turn and is very quick to come out of pedal and close.

Weak Points

Is more of a drag-down type of tackler and misses too many tackles. Not a strong run-support player. Needs to add upper body strength. Has good speed but he is not a burner and can be beat by real speed guys.

The Way We See It

A fourth-year senior and a two-year starter for Clemson. He has ideal size and has good to very good overall cover skills. Usually keeps good positioning. Is an alert player who can track the ball and has good hands (nine interceptions the past two years). He needs to get stronger in the upper body and become more aggressive in run support as well as do a better job tackling. He has the skill set to come in and play as a third corner as a rookie and eventually become a good No. 2 corner in the league.
