He is looking good at the Senior Bowl and is bigger than anyone expected. 6'3", 214, a very nice physical cornerback prospect. Mayock compared him to Sherman and Browner in terms of his size and physicality but appears to be faster and with better quickness. In their system he'd be a nightmare to deal with, in the 49ers system he's a guy that you can use to play press coverage or play off, he covers a lot of ground and is great at attacking the ball in the air. He's a California native, by all accounts a hard worker, not super flexible at the hips but not stiff either, moves well laterally and is one of my favorite CB prospects in this draft. He needs to improve as a tackler, as well as his hand placement when pressing a receiver but those are largely coachable issues. He's had some injury issues in the past, primarily related to his shoulder.
He's also capable of playing safety as well. A guy I'd love to see the 49ers snag with the KC pick in the 2nd round.
