DAYUMMM!!! LOOK AT HIS POSITIVES COMPARED TO HIS NEGATIVES???
Positives: Has a lean, angular frame that can add at least 10 more pounds with no loss of quickness … Very quick to read and diagnose plays, showing the ability to recognize the routes developing instantly … Has good pass coverage skills with the ability to jump on the receiver's hip and run with the opponent stride-for-stride on deep routes … Very crisp in and out of his breaks, showing good hand usage to redirect and jolt his assignment in press coverage … Has a smooth, low backpedal, staying in control when turning, showing the mirroring ability to stay close on the receiver … Very effective zone defender who makes quick adjustments and gets good depth in his cushion … Quick to break on the ball and gets good hand placement to prevent separation in the second level … Takes proper angles to the ball and has a keen knack for locating the pigskin (high amount of fumble recoveries, setting a school record) … Anticipates the running back's moves around the corner, showing no hesitation to step up in run support … Gets an excellent jump on the ball in flight, maintaining concentration while looking the ball in and keeping track of the receiver … Despite his light frame, he is not afraid to mix it up in the trenches … Very good at doing the "extra" things needed in practice, the film room and weight room to improve his ability (team-first guy, called a coach on the field by the Sooners staff) … Loves the challenge of facing up against the opponent's top receiver … Has the strength to play off blocks and the explosion to quickly break on the ball … Has the range to make up speed by taking good angles to the ball … His foot balance allows him to easily flip and turn coming out of his backpedal … Excels at riding the hip of the receiver and using the sidelines for help (gets his hands under the receiver's jersey to get a quick push that knocks his man out of bounds).
Negatives: Needs to add bulk and strength to his frame … Willing tackler, but does not have the strength to be anything more than an arm tackler (needs wrap-up tackling technique refinement) … Seems to hesitate a bit when asked to fill the rush lanes (gets there late, but does show willingness) … Has much better coverage skills than tackling ability.
