Strengths: Explosive athletic player who has returned kicks, carried and caught the ball during his time at Georgia – Could be a plus return specialist, finds holes in return coverage and weaves through them seamlessly – Extremely physical player down at the Senior Bowl who showed he can play press coverage as well as anyone in this draft class – Plays well in zone coverage as well reading the quarterback and reacting quickly with agility and athleticism – Played out of the slot a lot and rarely thrown on – Has legit 4.4 speed – Can turn and run smoothly and has second gear against faster WRs – Showed some ability blitzing out of the slot, gets off the line quickly and generates nice pressure.

Weaknesses: Doesn’t always take the best angle, especially in the running game – small in stature at 5’9 1/4” 183 lbs, but has long arms and wingspan – Doesn’t always attack in the running game – Can improve his tackling – Can come off the snap from the slot with lazy technique, stays too high – Footwork can be raw at times – Not a real ballhawk, but showed off good hands on offense – Suffered leg injury at Senior Bowl.
