Draft History
Drafted in 2017 NFL Draft: 2nd Round, 56th Overall Pick by Oakland Oakland
Additional Information Strengths:

Once in a decade type athlete. Freakish size for his athletic ability. Productive at UConn starting the past four-years. He has the size and speed to run with receivers, backs, and tight ends in coverage. A big hitter that rarely misses tackles. Versatility to play single high safety or in the box. Teams might even try him at corner because of his size and athletic ability. His potential will entice all 32 NFL teams.

Weaknesses:

Needs some coaching up to live up to hype. Long legs make it hard for him to turn and run with receivers. Coverage skills aren't fully there yet. He struggles to cover shiftier receivers in close space. Football IQ and instincts are a work in progress.
