Strong Points

Jack of all trades, has experience at CB, S, LB, RB, WR and KR. Great athlete with speed, body control and explosiveness. Makes plays. Very instinctive. Can play multiple positions at the next level. Excellent tackler in the open field. Showed in 2015 that he can play aggressive press coverage. Transitions quickly. Reacts well to the ball in the air. Has NFL kick returner talent.

Weak Points

Only one career interception is a concern, but he has shown he has good hands and ball reactions. Doesn't have the size to play linebacker at the NFL level.

The Way We See It

A unique player. We don't see players like this very often. Has the suddenness to play corner in the NFL, but will most likely be either a strong safety or a hybrid linebacker depending on the scheme of the team that drafts him. Can be a team's No. 1 returner as well as a starting positional player. Will make an impact as a rookie but at what position? Has the talent and skill set to be a possible top-five selection and a probable top-10 pick.
