Redwine joined his Killian High School teammate, safety Jaquan Johnson, in staying home for his college career. Redwine played 12 games as a true freshman, making 14 stops as a reserve cornerback and special-teamer. Redwine started five games at cornerback as a sophomore, collecting 28 tackles and two pass breakups. The versatile defender moved from corner to safety in the spring of 2017, then started 12 games there in the fall, racking up 59 tackles (2.5 for loss), intercepting two passes with six total pass breakups. ACC coaches voted Redwine honorable mention all-conference after his senior season (64 tackles, 3.5 for loss, three sacks, three interceptions, two pass breakups in 13 starts).

Overview
Aggressive, versatile safety who lacks consistency in coverage, but who possesses the ball skills and run support ability to challenge for a starter's role in time. Redwine's lapses in coverage stem more from a lack of urgency than talent and that might be correctable. In run support and as a tackler in general, he plays behind heavy pad and handles his work with an NFL level physicality. He's better suited in split-zone or down in the box and could become a key cog of the special teams until he gets his shot to start.
Strengths
  • Former cornerback with versatility to play all over
  • Good combination of size and speed
  • Physical traits to cover with in-line or mismatch tight ends
  • Effective reading quarterbacks and route from zone
  • Plays under control in recovery mode as deep safety
  • Shows ability to track and high-point like a wide receiver
  • Will not turn down a chance to hit
  • Forceful striker as a tackler and to dislodge the throw
  • Patient and balanced as open-field tackler
  • Potential to become special teams ace
Weaknesses
  • Seemed to be sleep-walking in Boston College game
  • Allowed his man to easy catches before closing
  • Needs to recognize incoming danger from split zone
  • Can be lackadaisical on back side of coverage
  • Needs to be more prepared to help with overlaps
  • Combo routes cause some confusion
  • Average lateral transitions in coverage
  • Coverage too loose at top of the route against slots in off-man
  • Room to improve with back to the ball

"He got a lot better from last year to this year even though his production looked better in 2017. He's inconsistent, but he's big and he can run and cover which gives him NFL value." - NFC national scout
