Projection: Developmental starter who can join DB rotation early. Ideally to play in a split-safety role with more zone drops than man coverage. Draft Projection: Early Round 2 ~ GrindingTheMocks.com

Ravens Fit: Cine is a good fit with the Ravens for many reasons. He’s certainly athletic enough and he processes at a pretty high-level. He’s demonstrated his potential versatility in college and is a tough guy that does play like a Raven. He falls just short of being a perfect fit for the Ravens. He’s a developmental starter who would backup Chuck Clark currently and would need to work on his drive and transition mechanics before he stood any chance of being a regular starter – the Ravens would ask too much of him in man coverage for him to start immediately given the issues he has to overcome in transition.
 
Overall Fit 4/5

Context

Played most of his career as a Free Safety outside the box but has also played in the box and in man coverage on limited snaps.

Coverage

His max range is good, he can get to the sideline from a single high position thanks to his processing and speed, he more consistently makes plays at the numbers than outside them. When he doesn’t make plays at the numbers is when he’s facing more sophisticated schemes with NFL-type talent at the Quarterback position. He has some deficiencies in his drive and transition mechanics that can show up when he initially looks to make it to the sideline to make a play on the ball. When he has a processing advantage, he can get off his spot quickly and cover up somewhat his issues in transition but when he’s matched or even out-played in the mental aspect of the game, he can struggle to make the plays that his speed and vertical explosion should allow him to. Those Quarterbacks with good processing and good eye discipline can also cause him problems when he’s playing as the robber and can manipulate his movement to get WRs open in behind him.

He does line up in man coverage a lot as a versatile safety that moves around the formation for Georgia. He moves well on the 45 and has an efficient backpedal but in man coverage you can see more of the drive and transition mechanics challenges he has. He regularly takes an extra step to drive on or transition towards the football. He’s twitchy and explosive when driving on the football from a stationary position and he can use his processing – he’s excellent at reading the WR’s hips and understanding route progressions, to get a jump on breaks in routes and stay in phase. But against more savvy WRs with good salesmanship to their routes and who match his play speed he can struggle to mirror in confined spaces. His ball skills are very good, he deploys his length well at the catch-point and he has excellent timing and placement with his hands to get to the ball – he’s physical and can get balls out even a split-second after the receiver has seemingly secured the ball. He can compete at the catch-point against all types of receiver including bigger TEs. He could stand to get more INTs.

Run Support and Tackling

Very good in run support. He reads run pass effectively and has a quick trigger. He takes good angles to the football, measuring especially well against Running Backs. He could measure his angles more effectively when filtering through especially heavy traffic. He hits hard and tackles with his shoulder against bigger ball-carriers showing no problem getting bigger runners to the ground. Against more athletic ball carriers like speedier WRs on reverses or in the open-field he can over-pursue and tackle with his arms too much. He is physically tough.

SUMMARY
Tough guy, hard-hitting with speed and explosion from standing start. Good processor. Some transition and drive mechanics deficiencies in coverage
