Analysis

Primarily a Cover 2 deep half safety or Cover 1 deep man who flexed into the box or slot on occasion. Wasn’t a consistent starter during his breakout season in 2020, but seems to have a strong grip on a starting job heading into 2022. Slender frame from his background as a corner probably will prevent him from playing anything but deep halves as a pro. Instinctive player who really impressed me with his ability to stick to responsibilities against the triple option of Georgia Southern. Doesn’t have the mass to consistently impact the game as a tackler. Don’t mind him as a cover guy when the action stays in front of him, but he lacks the top-end speed to keep up with deep threat receivers. Likely a career special teamer if he cracks a roster, but could shine in that role thanks to plus instincts.
