Overview

Butler has good size and straight line speed for the position but lacks great change of direction in coverage and lateral quickness in pure man schemes. He isn’t a physical tackler and needs to use his hands better to separate from blockers. Butler understands angles and how to leverage the ball but consistency is lacking. He needs to become more comfortable tracking the ball to make plays as a pass defender. Butler is a better athlete than football player but has the tools to develop into a solid NFL defender. He is a bit of a project and may contribute early as a rolled up corner in two deep coverage’s as well as special teams.

Analysis

Strengths

Butler has a terrific blend of size and top-end speed. An extremely durable performer in college. Plays with a high level of intelligence and shows good instincts necessary to jump routes. Utilizes his prototypical height and straight-line speed to cover a lot of ground. Productive player, who can be counted on to register big plays.

Weaknesses

Butler only displays average ball skills. He needs to catch the ball away from his frame more consistently. Has a tough time shedding blocks. Doesn’t appear willing at times to stick his head in there on run support. Open-field tackling needs to improve. Lacks some lateral agility to turn and run and mirror receivers in man coverage.
