Davon House scouting report

Davon House CB New Mexico State
Ht: 6’1″

Wt: 200

Elite size. Impressive strength. A physical cover corner. Has the speed to turn and run with just about any receiver. Shows good instincts. Does a nice job turning and reacting to the ball in the air. Good ball skills; does a great job playing the ball rather than just the receiver.
Limited experience against top competition. Lacks effort in run support. Tackling technique is poor. Overaggressive at times; likes to go for the interception whenever possible. Bites on pump fakes too often and will occasionally get beat deep as a result.
House’s size makes him a very intriguing prospect. Had he played at a top level program it’s possible that he would generate some consideration as a 1st round pick. However, his lack of experience against top competition raises some questions about his ability to step up to the next level. Most of his mistakes came from his overaggressive tendencies – this could be a result of his overconfidence against weak competition, or it could be a trend that sticks with him. Unfortunately we won’t really know the answer until he’s tested by NFL receivers.
