Scouting Report – Player Analysis

Possesses prototype size, bulk and length for the position. He has elite speed and change of direction ability with his loose, fluid hips and light, quick feet. Demonstrates unreal balance and body bend throughout his movement and is explosive in all facets of the game. He excels in all types of coverage whether it be zone or man coverage. In press coverage he has quick feet and hips that naturally swivel and allow him to jam and mirror even the quickest receivers. He can turn and run in the blink of an eye without losing any ground and explodes in and out of transition. In off coverage he’s patient and keys the quarterback and receiver’s timing and makes sudden breaks on the football. He’s also not easily turned around and mirrors easily in space. He’s very savvy for a young cornerback and always maintains position in the hip pocket of receivers. When running down the sideline he knows how to squeeze the receiver toward the sideline and use it as another defender so to speak. He’s patient and doesn’t panic when the ball is in the air and is athletic enough to elevate and make plays on it. Always exhibiting maximum effort, Lattimore has the long speed and effort to run with drag routes and deep crossers across the field. He has top notch recovery speed that quarterbacks cannot anticipate and allows him to make plays and create turnovers when it appears as if he’s out of the play. In zone coverage he’s aware and quick to react to pass catchers coming into his zone. He doesn’t get stuck reading his immediate assignment and freelances if he has to. One of his best attributes is his cocky, feisty mentality. He plays like a number one cornerback and will physically battle receivers all game without getting his will broken. This carries over into his efforts in run support where he’ll recklessly sacrifice his own safety to make tackles that safeties usually make. He takes phenomenal angles and has great closing burst making him appear more powerful than his frame suggests. He wraps up and is one of the most reliable tacklers I’ve seen as far as cornerbacks go.

Although he’s only a redshirt sophomore, Lattimore is an elite prospect and is the prototype cornerback for today’s NFL. The emergence of more wide open schemes and smaller, quicker receivers dominating like Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham make Lattimore a guy teams will want early on day one of the draft. He’s quick and agile enough to cover smaller guys but long and physical enough to cover true height/weight/speed guys like Julio Jones and Dez Bryant. His combo of size and speed along with technique and elite ball skills make him a top prospect even though he’s a young player. Add in that he’s easily one of the most explosive and athletic players in the nation and he becomes a pro ready prospect who also has an unlimited ceiling.
