Positives: Explosive, quick-twitch athlete. Looks the part and has been very consistent and productive. Good size and length. Centerfielder-type safety. Excellent hands. Very good range and ball skills. Solid on run support. Reliable, wrap-up tackler. Physical, intense and aggressive. Fluid hips and smooth change of direction and agility. Very good feet, quickness and recovery speed. Has played corner and has tools to move there. Has returned kicks.

Negatives: Lacks great size or elite speed. Good but not dominant against a lower level of competition. Inconsistent recognition. Will take some false steps and show hesitation. A half-click off on his pursuit angles occasionally.

Summary: Solid all-around prospect with natural first-round talent. Could be looked at as a corner by some teams.
