Has a tendency to get a bit leggy when asked to re-direct in coverage and looks a bit stiff trying to transition out of his back-pedal, as he has a bit of a hitch opening up his hips. Possesses only average make-up speed at the position.
However, is developing as a press corner, possesses the length/strength to routinely re-route off the line, does a nice job keeping his feet under him and if he doesn't have to turn and run displays a real quick twitch ability about him closing underneath.
Displays developing natural instincts as a corner, feels his cushion well when he is in off coverage, stays low in his backpedal and despite getting a bit overextend at times, collects himself quickly and has impressive click and close ability.
Showcases a real explosive element to his game when driving on the throw, not only when playing the football, but also as a tackler. Displays plus ball skills coming downhill, adjusts well to the play and looks natural under cutting routes.
Gets himself in trouble at times down the field, will allows receivers to get behind him, if he can't get an arm bar into them he will give up separation vertically. However, does a nice job looking and leaning when the ball is in the air and can highpoint the throw.
Is a "plus" tackler who isn't only going to set the edge on the outside, but will attack downhill and create collisions on contact. Breaks down well, possesses a natural snap to his game and is one of the better tackling corner prospects I have seen on tape this year.
Impression: Might be limited to more of a cover two/click and close type corner, but he does have some developing press coverage skills. Also, has a lot of value as a safety, as he can anticipate in the deep half, drive on throws under him and play over a receiver in nickel situations."
Isn't afraid of contact and will deliver a blow if given an open shot, but tackles high and struggles to break down in space — is a bit high-cut and leggy, which restricts his efficiency of movement and fluidity.
Also has played safety and will be a three-year starter."
More quick than fast, though, and lacks elite closing speed; also not as tall as some teams like their safeties; good special teamer with a passion for the game; high school scoach was former USC All-american Tim McDonald."
