Cornerback Specific Traits

Instincts/Recognition 1 Appears to make strides in terms of confidence and recognition during four-game evaluation. (2011 Arkansas, 2011 LSU, 2011 National Championship and 2012 Michigan) Recognizes routes and anticipates breaks. Reads receiver and quarterback when facing the line of scrimmage. Does a good job of mid-pointing high-low route combinations. Knows when to turn and locate the ball when forced to turn and run. Has experience lining up on the outside and over the slot. Doesn't just play pass and he reacts quickly when reads run.
Cover Skills 2 Has the range and closing burst to excel in a zone heavy scheme. Fluid and long enough to develop into an effective press corner with increased upper body strength. Physical and knows how to run receivers off route. Average fluidity and burst in space but above average footwork and balance. Always looks under control.
Ball Skills 2 Doesn't always come down with 50-50 ball but makes sure receiver doesn't either. While not an elite playmaker at this point has some upside. Flashes the ability to highpoint. Tracks the ball and times jumps well. Appears to have long arms on film and doesn't have to be in perfect position to get a hand on the ball.
Run Support 2 Plays with an edge and doesn't shy away from contact. Willing to mix it up with offensive linemen and sacrifice body to make the play. Flashes the ability to lower shoulder and deliver big hit. Tougher than strong however and an inconsistent tackler. Takes too long to get off some blocks and can lose contain. Lunges at ball carriers' feet. Has some problems getting bigger ball carriers to the ground. Has the frame, instincts and range to play safety if gets stronger and improves consistency as a tackler. Even has some experience lining up in the box in Alabama scheme.

Cornerback Specific Traits

Instincts/Recognition 2 Confident, competitive and experienced cornerback who continues to improve his recognition skills. Displays natural instincts as a football player. Is crafty and shows good situational awareness. Can be a quarter-count late diagnosing quick-hitting routes (slants, outs, etc.) when playing off the line. But does a very nice job of transitioning eyes from WR to QB when working in zone (see: INT vs. LSU 2011). Diagnoses run quickly without getting caught peeking in backfield. Shows good instincts when turned loose on the blitz, which occurs frequently (four 2011 tapes studied).
Cover Skills 3 Has quick feet but is a bit high cut and lacks ideal change of direction skills. Has some trouble versus smaller, quicker WRs (ie Arkansas' Jarius Wright). However, he has the length to matchup well versus bigger WRs (ie LSU's Rueben Randle). Seems to be at his best in press-man coverage. Is learning how to properly use his hands to jab and reroute WRs at the line. Is aggressive and physical. Does a nice job with his feet and does not swing open the gate prematurely. Lacks explosive burst out of his pedal and teams will attack him with quick-hitters when they anticipate him giving a cushion.
Ball Skills 2 Has been an above average ballhawk throughout his career. Has returned three of 12 career punt returns for TDs. Is aggressive and attacks the ball like a WR. Does not appear to have great leaping ability but has long arms and has proven capable of catching ball over head.
Run Support 1 Aggressive cornerback. Not at all afraid to mix it up physically. Flies around the field and will sacrifice his body to get in on the play. Needs to be more consistent with hand usage and continue to improve upper body strength to disengage quicker. But he is willing and active in support. Does a nice job with outside leverage. Not afraid to mix it up near the line of scrimmage. Has experience at DS and has worked as an eight defender in the box. Also shows very good awareness when turned loose off the edge as a blitzer. Has a tendency to wrap up a bit high but does a better job than most college CBs of finishing tackles. Looks to strip the ball when possible and has flashed effectiveness in that area.
