H.S. Scouting Report

4-7 Round Day 3

Has the ideal size to play out on the boundary. No verified wingspan, but reach might one of the longest in the class when it comes to defensive backs. An instinctive defender with ball skills that can turn and run. Quick feet allow him to mirror at the line of scrimmage. Balanced, coordinated athlete given size. Aggressive with the hands, hanging onto receivers as they worked their way down the field. Fights to break up passes. Not afraid to lower the shoulder and throw his body into someone. Capable of breaking down and making a tackle in space. Intriguing blitz option with experience there. Comfortable in man coverage at this stage in his development, but will need to keep fine-tuning the technique. Doesn't get leveraged easy. Must, however, add functional strength. Moves well, although top-end speed a bit of a question mark given lack of verified testing data. Produced as a sophomore playing at one of the Peach State’s top programs. Followed that up with a strong junior season. Should be considered one of the nation’s top defensive backs in class of 2022 given what he has put on tape. Has a chance to get it done cornerback, but could get looks at other spots in the secondary. NFL frame.
