Notes: From Winchester, IL. Played in all 12 games and started the final 8, credited with 45 tackles, 2 tackles-for-loss, 1 interception, 4 pass breakups, 1 forced fumble and 1 fumble recovery in 2016.

Positives: Smooth athlete with fluid hips. Very good quickness, acceleration and speed. Good hands and ball reactions. Good play recognition and instincts. Breaks on the ball nicely and can jump routes. Very good on interceptions returns. Reliable open-field tackler.

Negatives: Leaves too much cushion at times. Struggles at times against bigger, physical receivers in contested situations. Occasionally gets caught peeking into the backfield. Needs technique refinement.

Summary: Needs to tighten up his cover technique, but is a natural and instinctive athlete with the tools to be a quality starter in the NFL.
