PROS: Well-built man cover corner with elite traits. Smart and measured footwork at the line of scrimmage in press coverage: works the step-kick technique with inside leverage with detailed lower body mechanics, staying grounded able to redirect at an instant’s notice. Will utilize hands decently through the contact window when working vertical stems off the red line. Has blue-chip hip mobility to flip hips and speed-turn when challenged by release moves at the line of scrimmage. Ankle flexibility also allows for play at significant angles when in recovery phase.
Explosive when closing from off coverage and comfortable reading routes stems to work to advantageous leverage positions. Again, smart with his feet, rarely false stepping or over-committing. Attacks the catch point on targets and has multiple impressive plays on the football that require physicality, anticipation, and athleticism. Has everything you’d expect of a potential first round corner.
CONS: Not super long and doesn’t have a great sense of timing on jump balls, limiting his impact on 50/50 situations. Not an elite tackler who is too passive in the running game and hardly has an interest in addressing blockers early or with conviction. Could recruit hands more in the contact window when working from press alignment, though mirroring is his game. Can get grabby downfield when in the recovery phase and isn’t super comfortable with his head turned to the football.
