Anthony Gaitor scouting report

Anthony Gaitor CB Florida International
Ht: 5’10″

Wt: 175

Strengths:
Impressive athlete with the speed to run with anyone. Extremely quick. Fluid hips and great footwork allow him to mirror receivers. Good ball skills; 11 career interceptions. Four-year starter. Surprisingly aggressive in run support considering his size; can only get better as he adds weight.
Weaknesses:
Vastly undersized; rail thin and needs to add a good 15-20 pounds of muscle if he’s going to be an impact player at the next level. Will probably be limited to playing in nickel packages. Tackling ability is marginal at best. Hasn’t faced elite competition.
Comments:
Gaitor has the athleticism to play at the next level, but his skill set blends in with 10-15 others in this draft class who will be limited to playing nickel corner in the pros. If he bulks up he has some upside, but he’ll need to put in some serious effort in an NFL weight training program before he starts to look the part.
