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.
