Analysis

LSU transfer who rotated in as the third boundary corner behind Derek Stingley Jr. and Eli Ricks. Taller corner with a slimmer frame. Not an overly productive player on the ball – 1 career interception and 8 passes defended over two seasons. Lack of mass translates to a lack of functional strength: not a good tackler or effective player as a press man corner. Sometimes struggles to keep inside leverage in man. Like his instincts out of zone; shows good understanding of developing route combinations and has above average burst to close on receivers with the ball in the air. Smooth footwork and change of direction ability always keeps him in the vicinity of the play. Likely the guy at Arkansas this season. Some stellar performances with a full complement of snaps against SEC talent and improved tackling could catapult him into the middle rounds. More likely that he returns for senior season and enters the draft in 2024.
