Overview

Trevathan is a fluid athlete who is undersized but crafty and uses his athletic ability to make high tackle production. In the right NFL system that can keep offensive lineman off him (likely a 4-3) Trevathan can hit a lane hard and make plays in the backfield. He struggles, due to his size, once blockers engage him and this will likely be his Achilles' heel at the next level. Due to his athletic ability and enormous production he has fourth-round value and could be selected even earlier by a team looking to take a risk on an undersized guy who could contribute immediately on special teams.

Analysis

Strengths

Trevathan is a good lateral mover who makes plays sideline to sideline. He can run everything down. He relies on his speed to rush the passer and brings a physical, explosive drive-shoulder tackle when he reaches the quarterback. He has good hands to secure interceptions and is active in the pass game even though he struggles when dropping. A classic undersized, athletic lateral mover at outside backer.

Weaknesses

Trevathan is an undersized backer who can struggle to shed away from bigger offensive lineman. He should be able to pass drop given his size, but he struggles there as well and seems to be unaware in terms of recognition and understanding how to play in space when defending the pass. He is better in tight and gets somewhat exposed when playing zone coverage. He can also be slow to diagnose plays at times; he needs to hit plays full speed to be effective. He can overrun plays at times even though he is effective in chase.
