Hands: 9″ Arms: 31 1/2″
40: N/A Bench: 7 Reps Vert: N/A Broad: N/A 3-Cone: N/A
Strengths: Decent height and length for position – Fantastic ball skills, locates the ball quickly and gets his hands on a lot of passes – Can play press, has solid technique and doesn’t try and do too much – Looks comfortable in zone, anticipates routes – Very fluid turning his hips and accelerating out of his breaks, allows him to close on ball quickly – Excels helping in the run game, sheds blocks quickly and while he isn’t a big hitter, he does have solid tackling fundamentals –
Weaknesses: A bit wiry, could add a few pounds in his upper body, might struggle against bigger NFL receivers – Seems to get a bit lost at times while running with receivers on deep routes, takes some interference calls – May run in the 4.4’s, but doesn’t always show off a 2nd gear – Knee scoped after the season.
