Overview

Gomes has the physicality and mentality to be a reserve defensive back who lines up near the box in nickel and dime packages while also providing special teams coverage value. Comfortable playing in zone down near the line, breaks well on the ball and is quick and aggressive in run support. Not capable of roaming the deep half or shadowing receivers, tight ends or backs in man coverage at the next level. Not comfortable tackling out in space. Durable and has the build to hold up in the NFL. Gomes has some limitations, but still warrant a late round selection or free agent consideration.

Analysis

Strengths

Gomes possesses good height and excellent bulk for the position. Is comfortable playing down in the box. Finds the football and pursues quickly with good determination. Consistently wraps up in tight areas down near the box. Has good ball skills. Takes direct routes, makes plays on the ball and has good hands.

Weaknesses

Does not have adequate coverage abilities. Idles down when transitioning or turning to run. Gives up separation and can't recover. Instincts in deep zone coverage are still improving. Can be boxed out by bigger, taller receivers and tight ends. Can struggle to disengage from more physical blockers. Will miss open field tackles.
