Comparison

Montae Nicholson Washington Commanders

Big-framed defensive back with good height. Appears to have good length as well. Should have high frame potential with plenty of space to add bulk. Versatile DB who has played corner, nickel, and safety, as well as spots on offense. Disruptive at the catch point. Physical at corner and will mix it up with receivers. Shows impressive top-end speed. Verified sub-11.00 100-meter time in spring of sophomore year (10.90). Capable tackler who can provide the big hit. Strong against the run and fights through perimeter blocks to make plays. Gets too handsy at times, including mid-route. Tackling technique consistency can improve. Technically raw in coverage and can play more fluid. Legitimate high-major DB prospect who projects to safety and could play either spot there, or provide position flex at nickel or even corner in some situations. Could become multi-year P5 starter with long-term NFL Draft ceiling.
