Strong Points

Was timed as the fastest defensive back at the Combine. Has long arms for his size. Has quick feet with an adequate turn. Shows the ability to support the run and is a fairly good tackler. Best in press coverage.

Weak Points

A bit short for what scouts and coaches now look for at corner. Has some tightness in his hips and will take extra steps to transition at times. Not overly instinctive and lacks top receiver awareness in zone and off.

The Way We See It

Has great speed but we don't always see that speed on tape. Has tightness in hips which causes him to play slower than his timed speed. Is seen mainly as a press corner right now because he lacks the top instincts to be good in off and zone. He shows toughness and can tackle. Might not be more than a fourth corner and core special teams guy when it's all said and done.
