Scouting Report
A big cornerback, he has the dimensions of a strong safety. He has to learn to react faster in zone coverage, as well as play with more urgency and keep the play in front of him. The physicality and pass-defense skills he showed in college football are still works in progress at the NFL level. He has the size and speed to be an effective press corner if he can improve his coverage instincts.
Long Range Potential: Depth cornerback.
