D.O.B.: N/A


PROS: Quick feet to mirror-and-match receivers in man coverage. Explodes to the ball from a standstill in underneath coverage. Reads the 3-step game well and processing the action in front of him quickly. Makes plays on the ball with ability to close on routes breaking in front of him. From off coverage, uses hands well to re-direct and even jam up a receiver down the field (albeit testing the illegal contact rules). Instincts and anticipation are pluses. Appears to have the long speed to stay on top of receivers. Off-coverage is currently his bread-and-butter.

CONS: Not especially big or fast for a corner. Both categories might check the box, but neither will be his calling card in NFL. Arms appear short. Can get over-eager in his footwork in press, forcing himself into recovery mode early. Has to use his hands more effectively in press, allows for clean releases far too easily. If receiver gains positioning on him early, he struggles to recover. Big hitch in his transition from pedal to moving forward hinder otherwise excellent click-and-close. Susceptible to double moves. Allows more separation than he should at times because of inefficient footwork. Too many false steps at the top of routes and at the line of scrimmage. Can be late to turn and run with receivers, allowing vertical separation.
