Scouting Report
A constant playmaker in the secondary. He's take-charge and aggressive, jamming receivers and doing a great job against the run. Regularly busts up passes and causes drops, and cleans up teammates' mistakes. Feisty, physical, and strong for his size. Also fluid and fast, with good return skills (both on pickoffs and punts). May not be ideally suited to pure man coverage duties, as he can be penalty-prone, is a bit undersized, and won't win many jump balls against big receivers. Almost plays more like a safety than a corner, but doesn't have safety size.
Long Range Potential: Physical playmaking cornerback with good return skills.
