Lacks the frame to hold up physically at the point of attack at the college level and can easily be washed out of the play. Struggles to shed/fend off blocks even vs. receiver when lined up in the slot. Looks very fluid/balanced in his drop in coverage.
Displays natural bend off the line sitting into his stance, opens up his hips cleanly when asked to redirect and generates a good burst out of his breaks closing on the throw. Will line up over the slot routinely and has a good feel for diagnosing routes, quickly drives on the football and holds up very well in space.
Has some savvy as a blitzer, makes himself small, explosive off the line and finds a way to knife his way into the backfield and cause havoc off the edge.
Impression: A tough, rangy kid who holds up well in coverage and I like him as a college player, but where do you play him in the NFL? Body type says strong safety, but he’s not physical enough to even warrant a high grade in that area as a defensive back."
