—Does a good job in block destruction. Sets the edge well.

—Plays with awareness and vision in zones.

—Shows the ball skills and hands to play the ball in the air.



—Speed needs to build up.

—Trouble sinking hips for intermediate routes.

—Can show tightness with lateral movement.



29 Tackles, 1 INT, 5 PBU


Campbell is an outside cornerback with good height for the position. He plays with good strength and physicality. While showing good straight line speed at times; there is also some hip tightness at the line of scrimmage and when sinking hips to get into breaks. With the ability to play the ball in the air, Campbell hasn't quite lit up the stats sheet the last three seasons.

Ultimately, Campbell doesn’t have the long speed required to consistently play bump and run at the next level. Although he ran a 4.39 at his pro day, he struggled with speed and quickness at times. Jaylen Waddle and Devonta Smith showed that during the 2020 Alabama vs Georgia game. Campbell may be best suited for a zone scheme or where he is primarily in off coverage and allowed to see routes in front of him.


GRADE: 7.5/10 (Potential NFL Starter — Round 3)
