    Pros: Troy aligns as an outside corner for the Fighting Irish defense. He has sufficient overall athleticism. He uses his size and length effectively in the passing game. He does an excellent job in zone coverage due to his length, instincts and propensity to get his hands on the football. In press man, he usually implores a soft press technique and does a good job of staying on top. When the balls in the air he doesn't panic and demonstrates sufficient ball skills. In off man he demonstrates good feet and hips. He does a good job of staying in phase, finding the football in the air and making a play. He should remain as an outside corner on 3rd downs, as well. 

    Cons: He is not overly aggressive or physical as a force player in zone. He could afford to be a better and more efficient tackler in this regard. I’d like to see him more disciplined with his eye progression. He will sometimes zone turn while in man coverage, most likely be cause he likes to look at the QB. He doesn't appear to have elite long, play speed. He could maximize his natural gifts And likely make more plays on the football if he were more efficient in his transition at the top of the route.
