Analysis

Strengths

Good-looking athlete in uniform with desired size in secondary. Was willing to play through a broken thumb in 2014. Has taken snaps at safety spots in sub packages. Heralded high school sprinter with blazing straight-line speed. Expected to run a blazing 40 time at NFL Scouting Combine. Showed he could bail and run with just about every receiver he faced in Big 12.

Weaknesses

Despite his straight-line speed, his play speed is below average. Struggles in off coverage. Slow to squeeze receivers coming out of their breaks. Tape shows a lack of competitive toughness and play strength. Lacks initial pop and smoothness of backpedal to be a disruptive press-cover corner. Rarely fights through receivers or goes the extra mile to make a play on the ball. Has size to play safety, but isn't physical enough against the run to be trusted in that spot.

Draft Projection

Undrafted

Sources Tell Us

"He's got the size and speed to make you give the tape a second look, but once the tape starts running, you see all you need to. Can't play." -- NFC West regional scout

Bottom Line

His combine speed will have people talking, as will his size and the classroom efforts that have helped him earn Academic All-Big 12 honors for four straight years. Unfortunately, his lack of cover talent, physicality and ball skills could make it tough for him to get much of a look from pro teams.
