Pos: 
Productive cornerback with outstanding ball skills who comes off a career season. Keeps the action in front of him, quickly tracks the pass in the air and displays good hands for the interception. Stays on the receiver’s hip out of breaks, displays a burst to the ball out of his plant and plays physical football. Makes plays with his back to the ball, locates the pass in the air and positions himself to defend the throw. Quick up the field to defend screen passes and running plays and wraps up tackling. Works hard in all areas of the game and plays with speed. Works well with safeties to bracket receivers over the middle of the field.
Neg: 
Small, which puts him at a distinct disadvantage. Struggles against bigger receivers and loses out in battles.
Analysis: 
Cheevers was omnipresent in the Boston college secondary and is a real playmaker with the head for the ball. Size limits him at the next level, but he should be a very effective nickel or dime back who can play in zone or backed off the line of scrimmage.
