Overview

Skrine comes from an FCS school and is undersized, but he can flat out run. He has elite recovery speed and quickly closes when the ball is in the air. However, he will struggle to mirror slot receivers as he is a bit tight in the hips and he will get pushed around by bigger receivers at the next level. He also struggles to wade through traffic in run support and will not bring down bigger ball carriers. Skrine is a late round prospect based on his tape, but he could go much earlier if he runs a blazing 40 time.

Analysis

Strengths

Skrine possesses very quick feet and excellent top end speed. Plays disciplined in zone coverage and has the closing burst to jump underneath routes. Can turn and run with anyone, tracks the ball in the air, and has reliable hands to make picks. Hard worker and very coachable.

Weaknesses

Undersized and will be out-muscled by stronger receivers at the next level. Tight hips limit his ability to chance direction quickly. Over aggressive at times and can be fooled by play action. Boxed out by bigger receivers in jump ball situations. Does not have the strength to shed blocks and is a poor tackler.
