Pos: 
Nice-sized corner with solid ball skills. Fluid in transition off the line, smooth in his hips and mixes it up with opponents throughout the route. Displays burst to the ball out of his plant, shows good timing and quickly closes to the action. Fights hard to get off blocks and makes his way up the field to defend the run.
Neg: 
Lacks deep speed and trails receivers downfield. Occasionally bites on ball fakes and receivers’ moves.
Analysis: 
Needham possesses the size and underlying skill to line up in dime packages and comes with a special-teams mentality.
