Pos: 
Developing cornerback with a lot of upside. Engages receivers at the line of scrimmage, quickly flips his hips in transition and sticks with opponents downfield. Reads receivers’ eyes and gets his head back around to locate the pass. Tracks the ball in the air, displays a nice move to the throw and possesses an excellent burst of closing speed. Mixes it up with opponents, stays on the receiver’s hip out of breaks and works hard to defend throws. Gives effort against the run.
Neg: 
Average size and height for a cornerback. Prone to an occasional blown coverage.
Analysis: 
Long burst on the scene as a sophomore in 2017 and really took his game to the next level last season. He’s a physical corner with solid ball skills who should quickly line up in nickel packages in the NFL.
