Strengths: Excellent quickness and elite speed – Sees the ball well, locates it quickly – Incredible instincts in zone, reminds us a lot of Asante Samuel – Fantastic change of direction abilities – Excellent ball skills, very good hands – Leaping ability makes him play taller – Makes quick adjustments in the air and near the sideline – Can contribute as a returner in the kicking game – Willing to try and make a hit.
Weaknesses: Very thin frame – Gives effort in run game, but will miss some tackles because of his size – Gets high in his backpedal – Not patient opening up his hips – Might be limited to certain schemes, specifically Cover-2 – A bit of a gambler – Doesn’t show elite recovery speed, even with his impressive 40 time.
