Shows a burst of closing speed, possesses terrific hands for the interception and is very agile. Wraps up tackling. Elusive and creative as a return specialist, altering the momentum of games with long returns.

The Bad: Falls asleep and at times blows assignments. Late reacting on occasion. Ran poorly at the combine.
