Analysis

Strengths

Nice arm length and press strength. Efficient pedal. Good plant and drive. Aggressive jumping routes when he sees it. Functional in run support -- leverages the field and takes good angles. Good closing speed. Solid, face-up tackler.

Weaknesses

Size is just adequate. Not an explosive athlete. Short-area quickness is lacking. Green instincts. Loses phase in transition. Average production on the ball. Faced marginal competition and could struggle adjusting to the speed of the pro game.

Draft Projection

Rounds 6-7

Bottom Line

Adequate-sized, shuffle-and-bail corner who shed weight to convert from safety to cornerback. Has length and moldable tools, but will require patience.
