Overview

Maxwell is a college corner that will likely need to make the move to safety at the next level. He has very good straight-line speed, but he is tight in the hips and will not be able to mirror shiftier receivers one-on-one. He is very aggressive and excels in press coverage, but he struggles to turn and run in man coverage. He is very capable against the running game, as he fills hard, delivers good shots and wraps effectively. Maxwell is a tough kid that could contribute on special teams, and has a chance to be a late round draft pick.


Strengths

Maxwell is a big corner that can run. Delivers a strong press at the line to reroute receivers and has the burst to close when the ball is in the air. Shows good instincts in zone coverage and has the ball skills to make interceptions. Aggressive in run support, sheds effectively and is a solid tackler.

Weaknesses

Lacks the hip fluidity to maintain his speed in transition and will not be able to stick in man coverage. Does not have the instincts to anticipate routes and overcome his lack of agility in man. Takes poor angles at times in run support and struggles to break down ball carriers in the open field.

Grade

2.9
