Davon House Scouting Report
Davon House
Davon House - New Mexico St. (HT: 6-0 - WT: 190)
Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 9 of 30

Positives: Prototypical height and speed, appears to have adequate bulk... Good production in four years with the Aggies (202 tackles, 10 interceptions, forced fumble)... Plays with a lot of confidence and energy, feeds off making big plays and breaking up passes... Is a physical corner with a strong upper body, is effective in press coverage, will knock smaller receivers off their routes at the line of scrimmage... Has fairly quick hips, is quick to open up and run with receivers, even when in press coverage... Is not afraid of contact, will come up in run situations and stick his nose on the football... Is pretty effective in zone coverage, reacts to the quarterback's eyes and shows good range in short zone coverage... Durability not an issue, has not missed any games due to injury.

Negatives: Needs to do a better job of reading receivers' eyes and turning his head when the ball is in the air, can be too slow to locate the ball... Sometimes plays the ball with his wrong hand and opens up in the wrong direction making him vulnerable to giving up the big play if he misses the ball... Vertical leap appears to be lacking, does not jump very well in jump ball situations... A little overaggressive at times, especially in run defense, tackles too high and will miss tackles in open space from lowering helmet and lunging... Needs to polish up footwork, takes big steps at times and allows too much separation out of cuts, will be especially susceptible to double moves in the NFL... Instincts appear average at best, uses athleticism to get in position, but needs to work on keying in on his reads, especially in man coverage.
