Strong Points

Has ideal size and length for an NFL corner. Had a great Combine with outstanding numbers in all drills. Has a strong jam and good mirror skills in man coverage. Can get in the hip pocket of the receiver and stay there. Good pedal and turn. Will look to re-route receivers. Plays the ball well and has good hands for the interception. Consistent run support player and tackler.

Weak Points

Is a bit of a strider who doesn't look or play as fast as he timed. Not as good in off man or zone as he is in press. Receiver awareness and route recognition is average. Not consistently quick to transition.

The Way We See It

His athletic numbers and size are ideal for an NFL corner but he doesn't play to those numbers. At this time, he is more of a press corner only and doesn't show the skill set to be a good zone or man off player. Still, his physical traits are rare and he may just need more coaching and technique work. Some clubs may also look at him as a safety because of his aggressive run support. His Pro Day and private workouts will tell a lot. With his Combine numbers, he could get drafted fairly high.
