I was very skeptical when I saw Hodges-Tomlinson’s measurables, but was quickly impressed when I turned on the tape. The first thing that jumps off the film is his ability to hang with any receiver. He has the speed to run the length of the field and the ability to mirror his receivers very well. He reminds me a lot of defensive point guards in the NBA. He is always in your face or on your hip, and no matter what you do you can’t shake him. If you do manage to gain any kind of separation, you better make your move fast or else he will be right back on you. Hodges-Tomlinson does tend to get grabby, as he can sometimes get carried away with hand-fighting or get a bit overzealous with the ball in the air. He also seems to struggle with in-breaking routes, where he sometimes falls behind receivers. Overall, Hodges-Tomlinson is a really solid cornerback. Don’t let his size fool you; he can cover anyone put in front of him. Right now, I see him going late in round one. His recovery, quickness, tackling ability, and ball skills make him a very valuable prospect.
