PROS: Size, length and speed are impressive. Physical and athletic safety prospect with excellent closing burst on routes breaking in front of him. Plays fast and aggressive. Constantly looking to get in on the action, typical Alabama mindset to dictate terms as a tackler. Has the radius to get runners to the ground by wrapping up outside his frame. Will lower the boom when given the opportunity. Can seamlessly adjust his angle to the ball on the fly. Flashes of range in his single high work. Overall fluidity and movement skills to be ideal in man coverage (limited reps on tape). Allowed just one catch in first career start vs. Clemson in the CFB playoff, which he was millimeters from intercepting. Didn’t surrender anything in coverage vs Georgia in national title game.

CONS: Technique and mental processing are still coming along. Can be quicker to recognize route combinations in his zone. Can get pulled away from his zone by the quarterback’s eyes. Can’t forget to go through his run reads before getting depth as a deep safety. At times is a little out of control as a tackler and can stand to throttle down some.
