Deommodore Lenoir aligns both outside and inside in the Oregon Ducks’ hybrid scheme. He is an adequate athlete with regard to his overall quickness in coverage. In the run game, he is a willing and effective tackler. He doesn’t always wrap up, but he gets the runner on the ground efficiently. In the passing game, he demonstrates good hips in coverage. He is smooth and fluid in soft press and usually stays in phase. He is not a good athlete in terms of speed and agility, which makes his margin for error smaller. He's more effective in zone coverage and can use his good instincts to diagnose routes. He does a very good job locating the ball is in the air and has some production.
Ideal Role: Sub-package cornerback.
Scheme Fit: Attacking defense with a heavy zone coverage influence.
