The BattleHawks safety has been a name to watch in the XFL, not just because of his status as the league’s only draft eligible player trying to pump his stock, but as a legit option at Free Safety.
Kenny Robinson and Will Hill locked down the back end of the STL defense that allowed the least points and second least yards in 2020. He alone put up 21 tackles, 1 sack, 1 QBH, 2 TFL, 2 INT and 2 PD.
Adjusted for 16 games, he would have had 67 tackles, 3 sacks and 3 QB hurries, and 6 each tackles for loss, interceptions and passes deflected. As a prospect who could’ve flown under the radar without the XFL, having tape in the pros will be key for him. Scouts are likely aware of his story and will have to take a look, and the 21 year old has proven that he can hang with pro talent.
He was often hailed as West Virginia’s best player even with 4th rounder Will Grier on the roster, and rather than deal with transfer portals he opted for the XFL. However, he wasn’t at the combine and West Virginia’s combine on the 25th may not be an option.
He’ll likely have to put on his own pro day to give scouts the data they need, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was a mid-round pick come April. At 6’3″ 200 pounds he has the length and play speed to cover some of the NFL’s larger tight ends, and can still fill out his frame to make bigger impacts in the box.
He has the ability to play CB or FS, and teams looking to reload their secondary with high upside proven talent could look his way.
Potential Fits: Kansas City, Detroit, Dallas, Philadelphia
