Reminds Us Of

Andrew Booth Minnesota Vikings

Prototype corner size with excellent length. Already good-sized for a corner but still has frame space to add mass if desired while maintaining athleticism.

Promising on-field profile with extensive snaps on both sides of the ball. Productive in all capacities with proven ball skills. Also a dangerous return option.

Displays high-level receiver-like body control and adjustment ability. Knows how to high point and win throws in traffic.

Fluid mover with better-than-expected suddenness relative to length / build when breaking on throws. Size / frame should allow for bona fide press competency, while rangy play style, ball skills, and awareness fit off coverage / zone very well.

High-level functional athleticism fostered by multi-sport background. Basketball player who produces big numbers on the hardwood. Also owns limited track experience, primarily in relays.

Verified combine testing provides a mixed bag. Looks like a top-tier short-area athlete with startling burst and agility, but can squeeze more juice out of open-field top-end gear. Size and instincts suggest high tackling potential, but technique and consistency can improve.

Through junior football season, appears to be one of the top prospects in Texas and among the nation's top DBs in his class. Projects as a potential multi-year high-major impact player with a long-term ceiling that could lead to the earlier rounds of the NFL Draft.

H.S. Athletic Background

Also plays basketball and runs track (4x100 relay).
