Exhibits above-average fluidity when asked to turn and run, and gets back up to speed quickly. However, he has only one real gear, lacks the straight-line speed to make up for a false step and the further down the field he is asked to cover, the more his lack of speed is exposed.
Isn't real comfortable in his drop in off-coverage. Quickly allows his pad level to rise, gets really upright and narrow with his footwork and struggles to remain balanced out of his breaks. Lacks the ability to stick his foot in the ground and drive on the throw, as he rarely has the footing to quickly change directions and make a play on the football.
Impression: Lacks ideal size and speed for the position and his inability to maintain balance in drop really hurts his chances of sniffing an NFL roster."
Positive: Productive college cornerback with poor size/speed numbers. Physical, mixes it up with receivers, and is quick up the field to help defend the run. Flashes on the scene, shows a burst of speed, and has good short-area quickness. Effective in zone coverage, quickly recognizes routes, and can stay with receivers out of breaks.
Negative: Lacks a quick backpedal and is off-balance when moving in reverse. Struggles making plays with his back to the ball. Not fluid in his hips. Shows poor instincts at times.
Analysis: Gettis was very productive on the college level but does not have skills that translate well to the NFL. Best facing the action, he could contribute as a dime back in zone coverage."
