Scouting Report
Assets: A very aware and patient playmaker who makes smart reads. Diagnoses the action well, then uses his good speed and excellent size and wingspan to either tackle ball-carriers or pick off passes. Possesses some very interesting tools.
Flaws: Isn't a top-end athlete with the agility (lacks fluidity on lateral movements and isn't a change-of-direction type of defender) to excel one-on-one against big , fast wideouts. Isn't an intimidating hitter. Needs to be in the right role to succeed.
Career Potential: Starting safety with some upside.
