Gareon Conley-DB-Ohio State
Size: 6’0 195lbs

Gareon Conley

Strengths:

  • Size and length
  • Solid coverage skills
  • Decent technique and footwork
  • Soft hands

Analysis: Gareon Conley has NFL size with above-average length. Plays long. He is at his best when playing with inside leverage and trapping receivers against the boundary. Shades receivers with a basketball stance — wide base, bent knees and wide arms. Creates challenging throwing lanes to target. Allowed just 37 percent completion rate. Press-man talent with zone instincts. Shows discipline and technique on verticals and curls. Has plus burst to the throw. Uses length to play around receiver and bat passes down underneath without interfering. Runs well and sinks into receiver’s lap down the field, getting his head around to make a play on the ball. Plays the ball with soft hands and outstanding timing.

Weaknesses:

  • Tight hips through transitions
  • ‘Handsy’
  • Run support
  • Struggled in off-man coverage

Analysis: Gareon Conley can be a little tight-hipped in his transitions. Pattern-match was just average when facing off against more advanced route trees. Michigan receivers created separation and some panic in Conley with their inside releases and crossing routes. Got caught reaching and holding in attempt to recover. Will occasionally default to face-guarding rather than turning to find ball. Can be slow to digest route combinations and lose track of his man. Doesn’t look as comfortable or confident in off-man. Plays small in run support and needs to work on consistency as a tackler. Gets driven off his spot by blocking receivers and rarely charges forward to attack near the line of scrimmage.
