Pros: Good height and has the frame to add additional mass without a significant loss in quickness. ... Aggressive defender that comes up quickly in run support. ... Versatile defender with experience playing throughout the secondary.
Cons: Bit of a "tweener." ... May lack the hip flexibility to turn and run with receivers and lacks the bulk teams prefer at safety. ... Has been protected by Oklahoma's aggressive scheme and may struggle in a more traditional NFL defense.
Styg's Broncos Fit: Some concerns with long-range ability to pick up defensive schemes effectively, he could be a solid fill-in and safe depth player. He is a sure tackler who understands lanes and is very disciplined, and can disrupt receivers around the line. Has the potential to be added as an extra dime back.
Scouting Reports and Offsite Links:
- Lendy Holmes wanted to improve his time in the 40-yard dash before April’s NFL Draft.
During Oklahoma’s Pro Day, the former Sooner free safety did just that.
After running the 40 in a disappointing 4.71 seconds at last month’s NFL Scouting Combine, Holmes ran a 4.65 at the Everest Training Center on Tuesday.
At least one of the 27 scouts in attendance had a time for Holmes as low as 4.55 seconds. [see more...]
- A tall, well-built safety with natural athleticism and a good overall skill set for the position. Plays with an aggressive nature and likes to attack downhill at the line of scrimmage. Possess long, strong arms and does a nice job breaking down and wrapping up in space. Displays good footwork and overall speed for his size. Finds the ball well down the field and has the closing burst to make plays away from his body. [see more...]
