Comparison

Stephon Gilmore New England Patriots

Physically advanced with a developed and muscled up build. Good height and length for the position. Among the best athletes in the 2019 cycle and has eye-popping combine testing numbers to his credit. A fluid mover with a long stride length. Utterly dominates inferior competition at the high school level both in coverage and as a return man. Shows outstanding downfield anticipatory and tracking skills. High interception total and turns into an offensive player with the ball in his hands. Primarily plays in off coverage, so will need to continue honing his press-man technique. Could also continue to improve his level of physicality and take-on strength as a tackler and run defender. Has one of the more advanced and unique corner skill sets in recent recruiting cycles. Projects to make an instant impact at the college level and has the talent to be a three-and-done early round draft pick.
