Scouting Report
Assets: 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.
Flaws: 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.
Career Potential: Smart, solid, but undersized starting cornerback.
