Strengths:

  • Size
  • Length
  • Route recognition
  • Vision
  • Deep range
  • Can line up over slot on matchup tight ends
  • Cover abilities

Weaknesses:

  • Want to see more from him in run support
  • Hasn’t fully adjusted to run-pursuit angles as safety just yet
  • Can get caught on play-action and fakes
  • More boom with pads

Analysis: Thornhill is a former cornerback who will likely line up at safety in the NFL. His size and cover talent should allow defensive coordinators the freedom to deploy him around the field in a variety of ways depending on the matchups and his running mate at safety. From a pure cover standpoint, Thornhill is one of the best in this very deep class. I want to see more from him in terms of run support and hitting the ball carrier, but his abilities will allow him to see the field early in his career.
