Analysis

Strengths

Good balance and agility -- recorded a 6.65-second 3-cone drill at his pro day, which would have ranked among DB leaders at the combine. Good route recognition and zone awareness. Has lined up outside and inside. Hardworking with solid character. Vocal on-field leader and team captain.

Weaknesses

Lacks ideal height. Below-average timed speed and leaping ability. Poor weight-room strength -- managed just eight bench-press reps at his pro day. Allows separation at the break point. Tends to clutch and grab. Struggled with the size and physicality of Penn State's Allen Robinson. Average ball production. Weak tackler.

Draft Projection

Round 7-Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Relatively short, smoother-than-sudden nickel cornerback best-suited for a predominantly zone team. Will have to prove himself on special teams in order to compete for a roster spot as a No. 4 or No. 5.
