Sheffield has about everything you are looking for in a cover corner and may be the best at what is a loaded position in the JuCo ranks in the Class of 2017. The transfer from Alabama shows tremendous quickness in and out of his breaks and closes on the football in an instant. He was considered more of a finesse corner coming out of high school, but it does not take long to see that he he has the ability to come up and be a sound tackler, so there are not many question marks surrounding his game. He is one of the fastest players in the nation regardless of position.
