First Round

Comparison

Richard Sherman San Francisco 49ers

Long, athletic 6-2 frame. Ccan smother an opposing receiver. Long arms allow him to really excel in press coverage. He plays with a tough, physical edge to his game. Has excellent closing speed and elite ball skills. Will gamble at times going for the big play and can be overly aggressive at times. Has improved his top-end speed and his ability to run with a receiver down the field. Is physical in run support and has excellent short-area quickness. Is an extremely instinctive player and always seems to be around the football. Is excellent in jump-ball situations and has the length to match up well with bigger receivers. Quick enough to blanket smaller receivers as well. Plays with a ton of fire and emotion and never takes a play off. Is highly competitive and was an elite-level receiver before being used exclusively as a cover corner. Projects as a impact upper tier Power 5 starter and future high round NFL draft pick.
