Ahkello Witherspoon Scouting Profile

"Great length and athletic ability for man coverage but is raw and a shoulders are for suits guy."


Russell Lansford Icon Sportswire

Strengths

Great length and athletic ability. Mirrors well with quickness and body control. Speed to carry over the top. Challenges at the catch point and gets his long arms in the way. Competitive and aware.

Weaknesses

Shoulders are for suits guy. A poor, soft, tackler. Gets in position but routinely whiffs. In the rare times he tackles he doesn't wrap, preferring to throw his shoulder in. Has the quickness to mirror but shows some rawness in his body control and balance.

Overall

One of the better man CBs in a historically deep class. Possesses great length and the athletic ability to mirror anyone. Physicality is lacking however and he’s a liability as a tackler at this point. He’s soft and misses his targets.

Pro Comparison: a soft Dominique Rodgers Cromartie
