Raw Talent
by: Dennis

Mike Jones!

You are definitely a physical player and come downhill more like a safety than a corner. You're also a ball hawk and go up with receivers to make plays on the ball.

I can see that you have athletic ability that makes up a bit for how raw you are.

You are new to football, so I most of my critiques stem from that:

The first is on your backpedal. Try to tighten it up a bit: narrow your base when you backpedal and skate backwards with your feet closer together instead of "walking" backward.

You also play a little close to the receivers off the line. The standard is 5-7 yds when playing off, but you routinely line up at about 3-4. If you're comfortable with the receivers' speed, or you're playing in zone, this can be ok, but it doesn't give you much room to read the play if the receiver is fast.

At the next level (assuming D1) you definitely won't be able to line up 4 yards in front of receivers. They'll eat up your cushion before you can blink. So, if you're playing off, work on playing from 6-7. That'll give you a little room to jump short routes or react to double moves.

3.9 Stars. Only because you're raw. If you work on your skills and technique, you easily have the athletic ability to be a 4.5-5 star DB.
