Strong Points

Big and strong with excellent timed speed and long arms. Can play a physical game and is a good hitter. Does a good job handling blockers and is a sure tackler. Strong box player. Flashes in man coverage but is mainly a zone player with good receiver awareness and can keep plays in front of him.

Weak Points

Timed speed doesn't match his jumps as they were very average. Does not play to timed speed. Gets high with his pedal and has average turn quickness because of some tightness in his hips. Will struggle with man coverage at the next level. Takes extra steps with his transition.

The Way We See It

One of four Michigan defensive backs who should get drafted. Has size, strength and hitting ability. A good but not great athlete with some tightness in his hips and he doesn't play to his timed speed. Looks like a box safety type. More of a backup safety but with his size and zone cover skills he may be able to be a nickel linebacker. Has growth potential to 225. Late-round pick who at worst will be a very good special teams player.
