Scouting Report
Assets: Makes life difficult for receivers. An instinctive ball-hawk who's constantly around the ball. Does a great job defending passes and busting them up, and also shows a knack for picking his spots and jumping routes for interceptions. Fluid and quick, and able to play in pure coverage situations.
Flaws: Exels mostly on effort, smarts, physicality, and guile. Lacks ideal physical tools overall for the pro cornerback position (including foot-speed, length, and explosiveness). Gets penalty-prone trying to stay with more athletic players. Doesn't provide much on the secondary blitz, and can do more stepping up to contain the run.
Career Potential: Physical, instinctive cover cornerback.
