Strengths
Fluid hips and good size/length; has the athleticism and strength needed to challenge receivers for the ball; good downfield speed. Best in press coverage.
Weaknesses
Slow to react at times and does not play a physical brand of football. Probably can't play in a scheme that runs a lot of zone.
Overall Analysis
Apple offers all the tools one needs for a shut down cornerback. While he probably does need to focus more on his play recognition his hesitancy as a tackler is not a deal breaker. Apple can start early and has the potential to be a long term starter in the NFL.
