6021, 188, 4.52

Notes: From Tampa, FL. Name pronounced “Batey.” Played in all 12 games, starting the final 4 at cornerback, with 19 tackles, 1 TFL and 2 PBU in 2015. Started all 13 games, with 42 tackles, 1 TFL, 3 INT (for 10 return yards) and 7 PBU in 2016. Started 12 of 13 games, with 49 tackles and 2 INT (for 48 yards) and 9 PBU in 2017.

Positives: Excellent size and length with good speed. Tracks the ball nicely. Can crash down off the edge. Very active. Does a nice job on run support and tackling.

Negatives: Gets beaten in coverage too often. Allows too much cushion at times and needs to tighten up his footwork and technique.

Summary: Still needs some refinement and better consistency, but has a great tool-set with high upside.
