Looks natural when asked to sit into his stance in coverage, possesses good flexibility and can keep his base down ideally in his drop. However, doesn't seem to trust his back-pedal at this stage. Needs to do a better job getting more depth off the line, consistently opens up his hips prematurely in an effort to turn and run down the field with receivers. Now, does exhibit good fluidity in the hips, stays low out of his transition and is able to get back up to speed quickly. But too often is forced to bail out of his back-pedal and turn his back to his man in order to regain his balance because of a false step.
Looks a lot more comfortable in off coverage and seems to trust his back-pedal a lot more with space in front of him. Does a nice job remaining compact and balanced and displays a good burst when asked to click and close on the football without wasting much motion. Lacks ideal instincts at this stage in zone and will take the occasional false step trying to find the football. But overall, displays good range and seems to quickly recover and put himself around the football. Just needs to do a better job getting his head around and locating the throw.
Impression: Displays the ability to click and close, turn and run and has the fluidity to get out of his breaks. Possesses very good straight-line speed, as well, and has the kind of compact frame to be a solid nickel guy at the next level if he can learn to trust his back-pedal more when playing up near the line."
Positive: Smallish but tough defensive back who plays with good quickness. Physical, fights throughout theroute, and quickly comes up the field to defend running plays and screens. Possesses a terrific burst of closing speed, flashes on the scene, and can recover from mistakes. Effective in zone coverage facing the action.
Negative: Often mismatched against bigger receivers. Will bite on receivers' moves and reacts late. Slow transitioning off the line.
Analysis: Broadway has displayed improvement in his game the past two seasons, and his speed is enticing. He could find a home as a dime back and he would help his cause by becoming a return man."
