Pos: 
Smallish, quick cornerback with outstanding ball skills. Plays tough, physical football, flies around the action and has an excellent burst of closing speed. Voluntarily defends the run, works to defend screen passes and battles opponents. Drives to the ball out of his plant, plays with suddenness and gives effort through the whistle.
Neg: 
Lack of height is an issue, as he loses out to taller receivers. Lacks great timed speed and struggles to stay downfield with faster opponents.
Analysis: 
Payne lacks classic height for the next level but has the tools to line up as a dime back and play special teams.
