His aggressive, ball-hawking nature will be especially desired by defensive coordinators. On any given play, Trevon Diggs is a firery competitor who can create turnovers.
Weaknesses
When Diggs fails to bully receivers with his wingspan, he gets burnt and burnt badly. He has good second gear, but it's not enough to stay with speed demons. Moreover, he also struggles to locate the ball when he trying to recover in coverage. This will be one of his biggest weaknesses in the NFL and smart offensive coordinators will look to exploit this issue to force pass interferences. He also struggles immensely in run support because of his poor tackling technique. His inability to bring down running backs is very apparent, and he should bulk up in the weight room to improve this weakness. Although he also fails to bring down receivers after the catch.
Overall Analysis
Diggs will most likely be a first-round pick in this year's draft. His versatility in both man and zone coverage will make him a future contributor for NFL defenses. Similar to most Alabama defenders, he has the discipline and confidence necessary to excel at the next level. He still needs to refine his tackling and ball skills but his ability to create turnovers will more than makeup for this.
