—Feisty, aggressive cornerback who tested well at the combine after an injury-plagued 2017.
—Picked off five passes in 2016 when healthy.
—Experience and impact as a punt returner.
—Has the quick feet to shadow underneath routes; he’s agile enough to handle slot receivers.
—Very tough at the line of scrimmage; rocks back receivers with a strong jam.
—Instinctive and plays the ball well when breaking on underneath routes.
—Attacks the ball and is good at disrupting catches.
—Knee and hand injuries limited his availability as a junior in 2017; injuries with a small frame will raise durability questions.
—Lack of height (5'10") and length make scouts think he’s more of a slot corner than an outside threat.
—Ran faster at the combine than his tape showed; catch-up speed was average on tape.
