2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama

Career Snapshot
One-year starter who earned Second Team All-SEC honors and made 37 tackles with three interceptions and eight pass breakups as a senior in 2019. Started six games as a junior before a broken foot ended his season.

Positives
Large, athletic cornerback with huge upside. Strong, physical and beats down opponents to defend the throw. Plays heads-up football, easily stays on the receiver’s hip out of breaks and shows a burst to the ball out of his plant. Gets his head back around, tracks the pass in the air and displays an outstanding move to the throw.

Effective facing the action, sticks to receivers everywhere on the field and makes plays with his back to the ball. Uses his length as an advantage to defend throws. Deceptively fast and easily stays downfield with opponents.

Negatives
Struggled with injuries as a junior. Hesitant when he follows receivers off the line of scrimmage, which puts him a half-yard behind opponents and makes him play catch-up to make a play on the throw.

Analysis
Diggs possesses the size, speed and ball skills to be a number one cornerback at the next level, but he must first pull his game together and brush off the rough edges. He comes with tremendous upside, and if coached properly, Diggs will be a bigtime talent at the next level.
