Strengths

Consistency and competitiveness are his hallmarks. No touchdowns allowed with five interceptions since 2017. Confident in press coverage. Crowds release-acceleration to slow route-timing. Has quick trigger to turn and sprint when needed. Foot quickness to stay tied to early phase of routes. Dials into opponents' route speed and stays in-phase. Good feel for timing of route breaks for effective matching. Excellent field awareness and in constant state of communication with teammates. Loves to squat and lurk on underneath route from off-man. Impressive burst to close. Plays the edges to challenge throws. Good timing on jump balls. Aggressive and accurate swipes at the catch point. Willing and able as open-field tackler.

Weaknesses

Small by NFL standards with thin lower body. Matching against NFL size on the outside could be a concern. Early to open hips against press fakes from Alabama receivers. Grabby when trailing complex routes. Physicality at the top of routes will be flagged in the pros. Plays a little too tall in space. Inconsistent reading quarterback's eyes for early jumps on the throw. Struggles to disengage from blocks in perimeter run support. Dropped potential takeaway opportunities.
