Pos: 
Nice-sized cornerback with terrific ball skills and outstanding upside potential. Instinctive, physical and disciplined. Engages receivers at the line of scrimmage, smoothly transitions to run downfield and works to get his head back around and locate the pass in the air. Breaks down well and mixes it up with opponents. Tracks the pass well and positions himself against opponents to break up throws. Displays good strength and works hard to defend the run.
Neg: 
Never ran for scouts after he tore a pectoral muscle on the bench press at the combine. Loses where he is on the field when he tries to track the pass in the air. Does not show good route recognition in zone. Does not have a large body of work at the college level.
Analysis: 
Sheffield had a tremendous campaign as a first-year starter in 2018 and then bolted for the draft. He's a terrific cornerback with great upside and possesses the measurables as well as the ball skills to develop into a starter at the next level.
