Strong Points

Excellent size, speed, strength and overall athleticism for the position. Can line up and play man coverage on a slot receiver. Excellent awareness and anticipation in zone coverage. Has corner movement skills with excellent hips, a smooth turn and he can transition very well. Very good in run support and a good tackler. Plays the ball well and has good hands to make interceptions. Good cover guy on special teams.

Weak Points

Junior coming out. A good hitter, but not a real banger.

The Way We See It

A two-year starter who is entering the draft. One of the better safeties in the country. Has excellent size, speed and atheticism and has corner-like cover skills. Will often line up on a slot receiver and does a great job staying with the receiver. He is a very willing run-support player who is quick to react to the run, can shed blocks and make plays near the line of scrimmage. Can tackle in tight or in space. Plays on special teams and is a good cover guy. Overall, a talented size-speed player who has the skill set to become one of the more productive safeties in the league once he gets adjusted. Just needs to become a little more physical.
