Pos: 
Solid college cornerback with enough skill to play at the next level. Quickly picks up coverage assignments, remains disciplined with the action and shows burst to the ball out of his plant. Fires up the field and works hard to defend running plays and screen passes. Plays tough, aggressive football. Fluid in his backpedal and in reverse and displays good change of direction.
Neg: 
Faceguards too much and struggles to make plays with his back to the ball. Average deep speed.
Analysis: 
Embry flashed next-level ability throughout his college career and projects as a potential dime back and special-teams player at the next level.
