Lenoir plays with a chip on his shoulder. He performs very well in off and press-man coverage, using very good technique to keep his leverage and positioning. He has good movement skills with the ability to anticipate routes and make plays on the ball. His best skills allow him to play in press or off-man schemes. With quick feet and reaction, Lenoir does well mirroring and shadowing receivers. He turns into a returner with the ball in his hands. He has consistent play from the outside corner position but will need to continue to develop his strength. Lenoir will also need to sure up his play in the run game as well.

GRADE: 7.4/10 (future role player/spot starter, Round 4)



PRO COMPARISON: Janoris Jenkins
