Scouting Report
A pretty well-rounded playmaker in the secondary: stays with his man thanks to near-elite foot-speed, is physical throughout the route, and has excellent hands, leaping ability, and instincts for pickoffs. Plays much bigger than his size. A good return man. Not ideally-sized and will struggle somewhat against jumbo receivers and tight ends. Could be a little more balanced and patient to keep from over-playing his man. Needs to keep rounding out his skill-set to avoid holding and penalties.
Long Range Potential: Quality starting cornerback.
