Speed
7.20
His closing speed is tremendous when he is in man coverage. He is also able to use his length while closing in on the reciever to break up the pass.
Press
6.00
He is more of a man corner than he is press corner. he rather relies on his length to break up the pass rather than his physicality
Agility
7.50
He is extremely quick and agile and can make many acrobatic catches. He also turns his head and is able to adjust his body to get interceptions when in man coverage.
Recovery
7.00
He has got tremendous long speed and is able to catch up to fast receivers.
Play Recognition
6.50
He does recognize different receiving patterns and he's comfortable jumping routes because of his athleticism.
Tackling
6.50
He is a willing tackler and often likes to tackle low because it's easier to get the ballcarrier down
Man Coverage
9.00
He is the best man corner in this draft and often looks back for the ball in coverage. He was a few dropped passes away from a few more interceptions. He is good att mirroring the receiver and looks back for the ball consistently.
Zone Coverage
7.00
He has got the explosiveness to cover in zones but may not be physical enough to consistently tackle bigger receivers or TE's that may be present in the coverage zones.
Ballhawking
7.50
He has got really good ball instincts and given the chance will intercept it. Occasionally he will drop a few interceptions but overall he can make tough catches using his athleticism.
Durability
7.00
He has been pretty durable from what I know and from what I can find he had a head injury that kept him out for a half. This was the Big Ten championship in 2018.
Character
5.00
I have not met with him so I can not judge this accurately.
Intangibles
8.50
He has got tremendous upside and intangibles and can become a very good corner at the next level.
Consistency
7.50
He is very consistent in man coverage and he can be trusted which is very important. He possesses good technique and looks for the football often in man coverage.
Strengths
He is a man coverage corner who possesses long arms, explosiveness, and agility. On top of that, he is 6ft 205 pounds which is ideal size for a man coverage corner.
Weaknesses
He can get too aggressive in man coverage sometimes allowing him to get beat. Also at times, he can fail to recognize route patterns that allow receivers to get open in his zone. He is best suited as a man corner and zone and press is not his strong suit.
Overall Analysis
He is a very good corner with the ability to become one of the best in the NFL. If he learns how to recognize plays better in zone coverage and becomes more technically sound in press he can end up being a very good corner in this league. (1st Round) Top 15 Pick
