Strengths

Steed's value is in his ability to use his athletic ability to cover in man and make plays on the ball at the end of plays. He is a good catcher who has had interception production throughout his career. Although he isn't a physical tackler, he understands how to shock-jam in man and play press to keep receivers off their routes. His man exposures are almost always playing out of press, and he has an impressive ability to stay with receivers after initiating a jam at the line of scrimmage. He is a decent player in zone, but his man skills are entirely what makes him intriguing.

Weaknesses

Steed could help himself by being a more physical player who could contribute early on special teams, but there are certain aspects to his overall physicality which will hurt his value here. He can play hesitant and wait just long enough to diagnose a play where he is out of it entirely. He also can shy away from tackles in run support and stick onto blocks. He plays as if to avoid contact and despite his cover skills, he will need to toughen up and become more of a physical tackler to contribute early at the next level.
