Pos: 
Relatively athletic cornerback with outstanding length. Instinctive, works hard to get off blocks and gives effort. Quick to flip his hips in transition, stays with assignments and locates the pass in the air. Effective facing the action, displays burst out of his plant and effectively times pass defenses. Strong and physically beats down pass catchers.
Neg: 
Lacks downfield speed and gets beaten in a foot race. Indecisive since he returned from his injury.
Analysis: 
Holder was highly rated by scouts before his 2016 season was cut short by injury. Although he never really got his game back on track last year, he possesses the size and previously showed the ball skills to be an effective nickel back at the next level.
