Strong Points

Plays with good athleticism and timed speed and has good overall body control and quick feet. Stays low in his pedal, has a quick turn and a good burst out of his turn. Keeps good position on receivers. Very good ability to track the ball with good hands to make interceptions. Has instincts and awareness in coverage and can play press, off or zone.

Weak Points

Suffered a severe lower leg injury at the Washington Pro Day and it is doubtful that he will be able to play in 2017. Has a small frame and lacks top strength. Not physical in run support, waits for plays to come to him and he is not a strong tackler. Needs to add strength and bulk. Combine jumps and agility times were very average for his position

The Way We See It

A third-year junior entering the draft. Was a three-year starter. Shows the quickness and suddenness needed to play corner in the NFL. Possesses good to very good cover skills in both man and zone coverage and plays the ball very well. Has nine career interceptions. He is not a real physical player, does not attack the run and will miss some tackles. More of a grab tackler than a face up type. Has a small frame with little growth potential but he still needs to add strength in both his upper and lower body. Has the coverage skills to be a very good cover corner but his lack of physical play is a concern. Was easily a first-round pick before his injury but will now get drafted later in the process.
