Strong Points

Has ideal height and length. Good frame. Has strength and shows he will hit. Does an adequate job shedding blocks and is fairly physical in run support. Shows awareness in coverage.

Weak Points

Doesn't have the ideal athletic skills to be a starting NFL corner. Average speed and lacks a smooth turn. Will take extra steps when he transitions. Ball skills are average. Missed the last few games of his college career because of a lower right leg fracture suffered in practice.

The Way We See It

Moved from wide receiver to corner during spring practice in 2013, and he played cornerback for Iowa but he might be better off at safety. Does not have the movement skills or suddenness most NFL defensive backs coaches require of a corner. He is competitive and he will hit. His best chance is to convert to safety and become a solid special-teams player. Late-round or free-agent type who has a chance because of size, awareness and hitting skills.
