Creeks played wide receiver in high school, both sides of the ball of Blinn, played a backup role at Sam Houston State, and the past two seasons at West Texas A&M. The way he plays corner shows signs of his days as a wide out. See below.
Creeks was the best athlete on the field in most of his games at West Texas A&M. He lined up at cornerback on both sides as well as some nickel. He was better at lining up at the line of scrimmage and playing man coverage. He stayed relaxed when the ball was in the air and was better at attack the ball than the receivers were. The interesting thing about Creeks is despite being good on bump and run coverage, he didn’t get a hand on the receiver as they got off the line. He allowed clean releases. At a higher level of competition, these releases would result in being several steps out of position. At times when he started the play ten yards off the ball, he sometimes got lost in coverage. He is more natural and comfortable in man coverage.
His tackling seems good for what tape I was able to find. He did what was needed when a running back got to his level and Creeks was able to make the open field tackle.
His ability to turn his head in coverage and play the ball while having loose hips may show that he has a natural ability to defend passes. He also appears to be coachable. If Creeks can get a training camp invite, he can make a roster as a reserve corner and potential gunner and special teamer.
Round Value: 7th-UDFA Signing
