NAME: Sheldrick Redwine
JERSEY: No. 22
RECRUITMENT RATING: 3-star
WT: 195 lbs
PROS: Experienced functioning in a variety of techniques including reps in man coverage. Has the size, strength and mobility to carry tight ends and bigger slots into space with adequate pattern matching ability. Is a physical tackler that does well to wrap low and bring his feet through contact. Never guilty of playing passive when given a chance to be physical. Willing to take on blocks in space and exchange power with whomever crosses his path. Sniffs out run plays and quick passes well and works to the football with urgency. Slapped together well with a thick, sturdy frame. Has success working in split zones and fulfilling his assignments.
CONS: Modest athletic ability and not a candidate to play as a single high safety. Ability to play the ball in the air is hit or miss; doesn’t always find it or get his head around in time. Ball skills are notably better playing forward than with his back to the line of scrimmage. Willing to take on blocks but needs to develop better hand technique to disengage. Contact power could improve.
