Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Jordyn Peters Auburn Tigers

Possesses great height and length for the secondary. High frame potential. Owns frame space that should get to 200-pound plateau with relative ease. Potentially position-versatile DB with natural fit at safety. Adequate athlete from a testing perspective (4.66 40, 4.39 shuttle, 33.1 vertical). Plays with a ballhawking and instinctive style. At home in zone covering chunks of territory as a center fielder. Breaks fairly well relative to heigh and length. Flashes encouraging ball skills. Shows high-pointing ability as a 50-50 defender. Length and timing allow for catch-point disruption. Willing tackler who can provide the big hit, but needs to clean up tackling technique and consistency. Plays high at times. Can improve overall quick-twitch, particularly in short-area lateral situations. Bona fide P5-caliber safety prospect who should develop into reliable starter in college.
