Strengths

Has prototypical height for an outside corner. Matches up well with tall receivers with his length, can use those long arms to press off the line, maintain contact down the sideline, and knock away passes in front of his man without interfering. Also wraps his long arms around receivers quickly after the catch to drag them down. Possesses enough short-area foot quickness to stay with receivers on inside and outside routes when playing on the line. Succeeds in playing the ball and making tackles in trail coverage. Good hip flexibility for his size, can turn-and-run with most receivers when in balance. Flashes excellent ball skills, can extend from his frame to bring in poor throws for the interception whether in man or zone.

Weaknesses

Lean build, must prove he can handle the physicality of NFL receivers in coverage and against the run. Needs to prove he has recovery and straight-line speed to be a reliable starter. Height can be a disadvantage against quicker receivers, gets high and leans back in his pedal at times, allowing his man to get separation at the top of their route. Gives too much cushion on occasion when playing off. Fails to break down on his tackles, will need to crank up the intensity to bring down NFL receivers up top. Gets overly physical downfield at times, especially when behind a step, drawing penalty flags.
