Scouting Report
The journeyman defensive back has bounced around the league throughout his career, rarely enjoying an extended stay. Huge by cornerback standards, he has obvious appeal as someone equipped to handle big wide receivers and contest the ball in the air. Reads and defends the run extremely well with superior closing speed and a wide tackling radius. Is less effective in press coverage than expected for a big man. Lacks takeaway skills and is best suited to zone schemes, which may explain his checkered history.
Long Range Potential: Inconsistent, physical cornerback.
