Summer Scouting Report

Size is a negative aspect that might be tough to overcome. Moving to safety for his senior season, although his specific usage is still an unknown. Uses his hands as a nuisance to the receiver, and he helps to control their path with it. Flashes the foot quickness to mirror guys step for step. Balance is impressive during his backpedal considering how much depth he can get without sacrificing control. Bigger guys are able to just wall him off at the catch point when working to the inside. Doesn’t bring much energy when it comes to playing the run game. Was dealing with an injury throughout the season that hindered his performance. Seemed a tick slow when it came to deep speed, and required some help over the top where most pro corners don’t. Head is late to get around and play the ball. Smooth flipping his hips; natural athleticism flashes on tape. Experienced in a variety of coverages. General disinterest in gang tackling situations is disappointing. Likes to hop off of the snap instead of start the backpedal with ease, and it puts him into a positional hole. Click and close ability doesn’t live up to expectations. 6th Round Summer Grade.
