Scouting Report
Assets: Has virtually every quality NFL teams covet in a cornerback: physicality, size, elite athleticism, speed, quickness, and great intensity level. Instinctive, and has the efficient approach needed to be a constant playmaker and interception threat. Also an explosive, tenacious return man who's a constant scoring threat.
Flaws: Takes far too many penalties. Could be a bigger hitter and tougher physically (which is occasionally an issue in one-on-one battles with the NFL's bigger, more overpowering receivers). Not as productive a tacker as he could/should be.
Career Potential: Pro Bowl cornerback / good return man.
