Lunges into his target with two hands consistently, loses balance and can easily be slipped/stroked off the line. Struggles to play from behind, lacks ideal play speed, is tight when asked to break down and doesn’t redirect and/or get back up to top end speed quickly. Gives up a lot of separation out of his breaks in man coverage and isn’t a guy who can hold up on the outside.
Is at his best in zone where he can feel routes develop under him and click and close to the football. Displays an above-average feel underneath, does a better job getting his hands on receivers down the field without losing his balance and looks more comfortable re-routing down the field.
Doesn’t have a great burst when asked to close, but seems to play faster because he gets earlier jumps on the football. Tackles well for his size. Has some pop, uses his length well and can routinely get his man to the ground in pursuit. However, isn’t as impressive near the line of scrimmage as he can easily be sealed/washed out on contact. Nevertheless, he isn’t afraid to throw his body around.
Impression: Tough to give out high grades to corners who are undersized and don’t run overly well. Possesses a solid frame, but I don’t see him being fluid enough or have the quick-twitch ability to hold his own from the slot in the NFL."
