Pos: 
Skilled small-school corner who’s also a tremendous special-teams player. Athletic, plays to his 40 time and displays a sense of timing as well as anticipation. Shows good awareness on the field, gets a jump on the ball and has an explosive closing burst bearing down on the play. Battles opponents throughout the action, gets vertical and contorts to defend the throw. Effectively tracks the pass in the air, stays on the receiver’s hip out of breaks and gets a hand in to knock away the throw. Quick up the field defending the run, sells out on the blitz and throws his body around to make plays. Game-changing punt returner who has also blocked field goals in the past.
Neg: 
Stiff pedaling in reverse and better off facing the action. Lack of height is a concern. Bites on receivers’ moves and gets caught out of position.
Analysis: 
Agnew comes with size limitations but is a terrific athlete and a multipurpose player who could line up over the slot receiver as well as play special teams. He could surprise next season as a dime back/return specialist/coverage unit player.
