Positives: Excellent athlete with good quickness, speed and agility. Very fluid hips. Can cover man-to-man and stay in a receiver’s hip pocket. Good hands and ball skills. Tough and feisty. Is not timid. Quick, darting punt returner.

Negatives: Small frame and build with mismatch limitations against bigger receivers in contested ball situations.

Summary: Might be limited to being a nickel-corner due to his size, but he can be a playmaker.
