Strengths:

  • Length
  • Tough
  • Solid backpedal
  • Upper-body strength
  • Doesn’t shy away from run support
  • Decent closing burst

Weaknesses:

  • Technique is lacking
  • False steps at top of his drop
  • Average field awareness
  • Tackling needs work
  • Tendency to grab and face-guard rather than turn and locate
  • Struggles to maintain proper leverage

Analysis: Rock Ya-Sin may possess one of the best names in the draft, but he has the potential to be one of the best corners as well. Only one season of FBS experience, he is raw that will need to sit on the bench before he can make an impact on the field. Technique needs work in all phases–from coverage to tackling, but he can develop into a lock-down corner in the NFL. He has elite size and length, powerful upper-body strength that could provide him with the ability to jam receivers at the line. Give him time and Ya-Sin can be a starter for a long time.
