Bio: Three-year starter who totaled 64 tackles with 3 interceptions and a team-leading 17 pass defenses as a senior. Junior totals were 43/2/11 after 65/1/5 the prior year.
Positives: Nice sized corner with a good head for the game. Effective backed off the line of scrimmage, quick to read or anticipate the action and displays an explosive break on the pass. Smooth in his hips, cognizant when the ball is in the air and works hard to defend the throw. Has a quick closing burst of speed and deflects away a lot of throws. Supports the run and makes a lot of tackles.
Negatives: Lacks the quick and fluid back pedal, loses in transition and cannot run downfield with opponents. Seems intimidated when lined up against speedier wide outs.
Analysis: Corner skills and instincts coupled with a lack of real speed make him best suited as a nickel back in zone coverage.
