Scouting Report
Brings a nice mix of pro-active, aggressive physicality and good anticipation to the NFL secondary. Makes confident, heads-up plays. He'll get his share of interceptions and fumble recoveries because he's very aware on the field and reacts quickly to changes in the action. His lack of ideal cornerback size is an issue against some jumbo-sized receivers, and he doesn't really make up for it with explosive speed. That same smaller stature may be a factor in his history of injuries. He additionally doesn't have a great wingspan for jump balls or disrputing.
Long Range Potential: Smart, solid, but undersized starting cornerback.
