Cordrea Tankersly

Strengths:

  • Length
  • Ball skills
  • Physical vs WR
  • Decent tackler

Analysis: Cordrea Tankersley has an angular build with good length. He looks to harass and smother receiver for as long as he can. Runs with access to a second gear when needed. Two-year starter with experience in a variety of coverages. Disruptive at the catch point using full arm extension to maximize his length. Ball production was very good; had eight interceptions in just two years as a starter. Shut down Virginia Tech’s Bucky Hodges in conference championship game, holding him to one catch and grabbing two interceptions. Soft hands will pluck it out of the air if he gets into position. Gets desired depth in Cover-2 responsibilities, balancing between high and low. Comes to balance and squares up as a tackler.

Weaknesses:

  • Anticipation below average
  • Allows too much separation
  • Too ‘grabby’ down field
  • Needs to add muscle mass

Analysis: For the kind of production Tankersley had at Clemson, it was somewhat surprising to watch his tape and see his anticipation and instincts are slightly below average. His eyes are unsure and can be slow to process and react. Lacks bend in his backpedal and bail techniques. Struggles to sink and redirect quickly for transitions forward against comeback routes. Allows too much route separation from off coverage and will need to squeeze tighter on next level. He will panic when he gets behind on vertical routes and starts to grab. Had eight pass-interference calls against him in two season. Inconsistent in finding the ball when back is to the quarterback. Needs to add more muscle to frame.
