Anthony Gaitor Scouting Report
Anthony Gaitor
Anthony Gaitor - Florida Int'l. (HT: 5-10 - WT: 178)
Combine 40: N/A - Position Rank: 27 of 45

Positives: Has pretty good speed, not a burner but can keep up with most receivers... Very good production in college, recorded 11 interceptions, three of which he took back for touchdowns... Is exceptional in short zone coverage, does a great job of marking receivers in his zone and reading the quarterback, jumps routes exceptionally well... Is solid in run support, loves to get downhill and make a big play, also blitzes very well off the edge... Sniffs out screens well, breaks on the ball pretty quickly... Has some pop in his pads, can make the big hit and force fumbles when taking good angles... Looks like an ideal cover-two corner.

Negatives: Is a little undersized for the corner position, about an inch shorter than average, could stand to add a little bulk to his frame... Not a natural man-to-man defender, looks uncomfortable playing off-man coverage, opens up too soon and can lose his receiver fairly easily... Recovery speed is not great, can get beat deep too easily... Gives up too much cushion at the break, route recognition skills are below-average... Looks a little stiff in the hips, gets way too high in the backpedal, needs to work on man coverage technique.
