Will Redmond

Mississippi State University
CB #2
6’1″ 186

 

Pros:

  • Tremendous straight-line speed
  • Great coverage skills and anticipation
  • Can run with quick receivers and doesn’t get out-muscled by bigger, more physical receivers
  • Tracks the ball well with solid hand-eye coordination
  • Mirrors receivers well and doesn’t allow himself to get beat over the top
  • Physical and aggressive but disciplined on double moves, play-action
  • Swift hips and rotates them quickly, allowing him to take better angles on ball carriers and get his body in position to play the ball in coverage
  • High football IQ, recognizes assignments in Zone
  • Explosive in jams
  • Not afraid to take on blockers
  • High motor; plays at the same speed all four quarters
  • Fearless

Cons:

  • Needs to vastly improve his tackling ability; puts head down and can’t see what he’s tackling, significantly improving his chance of injury
  • Doesn’t shed blocks well; tries to run around them rather than fight through them
  • Ankle bitter; doesn’t wrap up and will struggle against NFL backs with a combination of power and speed
  • Size and range aren’t desirable
  • Inconsistent when taking necessary angles to bring down ball carriers
  • Looks lost in space from time to time

Redmond is a great athlete and has potential to be a ball-hawking corner as he lead the Bulldogs in interceptions in 2014 with three. Unfortunately, Redmond tore his ACL in October and will likely fall in the draft. Redmond played in 20 career games with 74 total tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, seven pass breakups and three interceptions.

NFL Comparison: Richard Sherman
