Scouting Report
An elite cover corner, his great wheels and active hands usually land him the toughest assignments against the game's best wide receivers. Tough, consistent and durable, he is a natural sprinter and is rarely beaten over the top. Excels at hand fighting and often strips the ball at the point of the catch. Tackles aggressively in run support and seldom leaves the field. His declining takeaway rate and absence of blitzing skills are minor quibbles.
Long Range Potential: Stellar cover cornerback.
