Pos: 
King-sized college cornerback with great athleticism and upside potential. Physically imposing, jams receivers at the line of scrimmage and halts their releases from the snap of the ball. Displays good instincts, stays step for step with opponents downfield and tracks the pass in the air nicely. Instinctive, displays good hands for the interception and defends the run viciously. Physically beats down opponents to defend the throw. Forceful up the field on the blitz, wraps up ball carriers and brings them down at the point of attack.
Neg: 
Not fluid in his hips, slow in transition and does not burst to the ball out of his plant. Plays a bit upright and isn’t smooth in his backpedal or in reverse.
Analysis: 
Denmark was a physically imposing defensive back who played aggressive football and annihilated opponents at the small-school level. He's better when he faces the action, and when you look his size, athleticism and ability to force plays, Denmark projects nicely to safety.
