Johnny Patrick scouting report

Johnny Patrick CB Louisville
Ht: 5’11″

Wt: 191

Strengths:
Plenty of experience; a three-year starter who also saw the field as a freshman. Excellent in run support. A physical player for his size; doesn’t back down from matchups with bigger receivers. A smart, fundamentally sound player. Rarely gets caught out of position. A tough player who played through injuries.
Weaknesses:
Arrested for aggravated assault against his girlfriend in 2010. Lacks the elite speed to recover from mistakes. Isn’t an elite athlete; will struggle to keep pace with quicker, more agile receivers at the next level.
Comments:
Patrick is sort of a corner/safety ‘tweener. His lack of elite athleticism and his ability to play the run makes him a candidate to transition to safety at the next level. However, he is smaller than your typical free safety. He has NFL talent, but he may struggle to find a role that fits him.
