Scouting Report

Evaluated 04/05/2024

CooperPetagna
Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Verified at a shade under 6-foot-2 and 200-pounds in June of 2023, Winters more than likely possesses the growth potential to add an additional 15 to 20-pounds to his frame at the next level as evidenced by his 6-foot-4 plus wingspan. A two-way prospect that displays good athletic ability on both sides of the ball, the Enterprise standout is primarily positioned as an overhang safety on defense adept to operating closer to the line of scrimmage. Although Winters projects to defense on Saturdays, the majority of his on-field context comes via offense at the quarterback position where he accounts for a large part of his production on the ground. A reactionary athlete that flashes excellent feel on both sides of the ball, the Alabama native certainly excels in pass coverage out of the slot showing the ability to match up man-to-man with bigger body receivers and tight ends. Although his lack of defensive context at times can muddy his evaluation, there’s no shortage of athletic evidence to suggest that Winter’s can’t grow into a nickel safety or hybrid linebacker role at the next level. Considering he's a heady two-way player that’s barely scratched the surface of his defensive upside, Winters projects as a high level multi-year starter at a Power Four program with the ability to add position versatility and immediate special teams value at the next level.
