Commitment – Undecided

Name/Location/Date/Time of film for evaluation – Regular Season Tape - Hudl - 11/22/20 - 4m 18sec

Physical Attributes – With a 22.20 200m verified in 2020, Eric proves he can run.  He is a shorter CB with thick lowers.  He has great feet, balance and body control, short area quickness and can open and flip his hips.  He shows explosiveness.  Physically he is gifted but I need to know how explosive he is in terms of vertical/broad jump to deal with big, strong, fast, athletic WR’s.    

Position Specific Skills – Eric can play the deep part of the field and make plays on the ball.  He can play both man and zone concepts.  He has great feet, balance and body control and can open and flip hips along with great catch up speed.  He is a very instinctive player with field awareness to be productive.  He plays with effort and physicality which you like to see.          

Overall – Eric is a talented CB who has a great skill set to cover both in man and zone concepts.  He can run.  He has good feet and hips.  He has really good technique and looks like he is coached up and can take coaching.  A quick twitched overall good athlete who can cover.  He also shows the toughness you want to see in terms of tackling and getting off stalk blocks.  Need to work on getting bigger, stronger and faster to compete with bigger, stronger, faster athletes.
