Strong Points

Good height, long arms. Very good athlete with speed, quickness, suddenness, change of direction and balance. Very good cover guy, be it man, off or zone. Instinctive and aware. Smooth pedal and turn. No hesitation or false step when he closes. Very good hands. Willing run-support player. Had an outstanding Combine.

Weak Points

Lean frame, needs to add upper and lower body strength and bulk. Will miss some tackles and will be slow to get off blocks because of his lack of strength. Still not physically mature.

The Way We See It

Third-year junior and two-year starter. Tall with length but needs to add strength and bulk. Can easily hold 205. Has very good cover skills. Can pedal and turn very easily and shows excellent mirror skills in man coverage. Plays a lot of zone and is very aware. Plays the ball well in the air and has good hands. The only real weak part of his game is run support. He is willing but his lack of strength causes him to be slow off the blocks and miss tackles. Once he gets stronger, that will remedy itself. Has the talent to start as a rookie and become an eventual No. 1 corner in the league. Very talented guy.
