Bio: 
Two-year starter who made 48 tackles (four for loss) with one interception, one sack and eight pass breakups in 2017. Posted 48 tackles (three for loss), one sack, two forced fumbles and eight PBUs as a junior.
Pos: 
Explosive and athletic cornerback with a developing game. Fluid flipping his hips off the line, easily runs downfield with receivers and plays to his timed speed. Quickly closes to the action, shows a burst to the ball out of his plant and has tremendous closing speed. Plays with excellent awareness, easily stays with receivers out of breaks and shows good route recognition. Tracks the ball in the air and gets his head back around to make plays on the pass. Battles hard throughout the action and competes to break up throws. Fires up the field to defend running plays and screen passes. Squares into ball carriers and gives effort tackling.
Neg: 
Really struggles against larger opponents. Loses out in battles. Easily boxed from the action. Marginal ball production.
Analysis: 
Averett has shown continued progress and possesses the physical skills and football ability to line up in nickel packages in a variety of defensive schemes.
