Overview

Conte has enough size and speed coupled with the mentality you like to see. Probably never becomes a starter, but could be an effective reserve safety and special teams cover guy. Only started for one season in college so potentially has more development left in him than most other draft prospects. Is currently a liability in coverage. Doesn't have the experience or instincts in zone coverage to be counted on to erase a deep half or the lateral quickness and acceleration to hold up in man coverage. Shows the ability to develop into a productive run supporter. Conte could be a seventh-rounder or priority free agent.

Analysis

Strengths

Conte is a bigger safety prospect with good speed for his size. Will line up over slots and disrupt their release. Possesses a wide radius for breaking up passes. Diagnoses the run quickly and comes up with some physicality. Displays the ability to shed blocks. Has some long range speed.

Weaknesses

Lacks experience. Awareness in coverage is not adequate. Doesn't anticipate breaks, bites on play action fakes, and will roam out of position in zone coverage. Struggles to mirror in man coverage. Will not comes down with the tough interception. Doesn't possess explosive short-area burst in coverage or run support. Will tackle high at times.
