Strengths

Freakishly tall and long for the position with limbs that go on for days. Straight line athlete with long- strides who is able to come from two­-deep and close ground quickly on deep sideline throws. Suited for single-­high coverage. Will read quarterback?s eyes and shade coverage accordingly while staying deeper than the deepest receiver. Deployed near line of scrimmage with some success. Has the length and range to become a volume tackler if his desire improves. Able to contribute immediately on special teams coverage and finished 2015 with seven special teams tackles. Coaches commend him for his personal growth and improved maturity.

Weaknesses

Built more like a rail-­thin shooting guard than a safety. Play demeanor and effort level can best be described as blasé. Slow to get set pre­snap. When playing near line of scrimmage, was slow to diagnose counters and got stuck out of position to make tackles. Want to see more urgency to make plays near in the box. Can be mismatched in man coverage by shifty slot receivers. May be too tall to open hips and accelerate quickly enough in man and change of direction is inconsistent. Production level should be much higher with his physical gifts. Too many busts in coverage leading to free running receivers.
