CooperPetagna
Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Possesses ideal size for his position at 6-foot-2 and 180-pounds. Appears to possess growth potential to add additional weight to his frame. Displays good athleticism in multiple positions throughout the secondary.

Long reactionary defensive back with fluid hips that transitions smoothly in and out of breaks. More of a smooth hipped athlete than he is quick twitch explosive. Appears to have good short area quickness and change of direction ability. Displays good patience and suddenness as a man to man slot defender. Possesses above average play speed. Could see a natural progression to a deep middle defender or as a nickel from his corner position.

Flashes some key and diagnose ability in the short to intermediate part of the field. Willing run support defender with the ability to play in space. Demonstrates some ability to play the ball but has limited ball production.

Plays in multiple positions throughout the secondary but appears most comfortable as a slot defender and as a deep safety. Has the ability to play corner if needed but more than likely projects as a safety at the next level. High processing player that wins with instincts more than physical traits. Will add value in multiple special teams units. Projects as a high impact starter at a Power Five program at the next level. Will more than likely need a year to develop before making considerable contributions.
