What the scouts are saying:
"A big, strong cornerback who must prove that he can recover from offseason knee surgery and return to being the player he was as a junior, when he graded out highly in press coverage, as a tackler and for his ability to make plays on the ball. Has a unique combination of size and speed." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)
"Highly versatile defender with experience playing three different positions in a pro-style scheme that has produced a number of NFL defensive backs. Quality special teams performer who projects well as a defender on kick and punt coverage units" (Rob Rang, CBSSports.com)
"He loves using his size and strength to jam the wide receiver and try to force him out of the play, but he will need to be careful in the NFL limiting the contact after five yards. His physical style of play is perfect for multiple teams in the NFL and will be coveted by many teams for it." (edraft.com)
