Analysis

Strengths

Looks the part with outstanding size and good body length. Is willing in run support. Solid open-field tackler -- can lasso ball carriers.

Weaknesses

Very lean and leggy. Pedals tall. Can do a better job protecting his legs. Raw instincts and awareness. Is late to sort out routes and drive on the ball in zone coverage. Average production.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

A developmental press corner with desirable size, length and tackling ability to function in short areas with continued improvement. Must prove his wares on special teams.
