NFL.com Scouting Report

  • Weight: 206 lbs.

  • Hand Size: 8 1/2 in.
  • College: Nebraska
  • Conference: Big 12
  • Position: CB

 

Overview

Amukamara has the size, speed and awareness to start from day one and turn into one of the league's finer players at the cornerback position. Takes advantage of his instincts and smarts in zone coverage but also has the ability to hold up when asked to cover on an island. Possesses good overall ball skills and hands. Will help out and support the run. Durable, aggressive, competitive and hard-working. No major weaknesses in his game, but isn't an elite, quick-twitched athlete or a true burner in terms of straight-line speed. Amukamara will likely be selected early in the first round.    

Strengths

Amukamara is an exceptional blend of height, strength and speed. Very sound positioning and instincts in zone coverage and diagnoses quickly. Can play on an island in man. Uses size to press and re-route at the line, can turn and run and recover, and tracks the ball well. Willing and productive in run support.    

Weaknesses

Not too many holes in his game. Does not possess elite fluidity and idles down a bit in and out of his breaks and when turning to recover. Can struggle at times to get off blocks near the line. Not a big hitter. Only has two-plus years of starting experience.
