PFN Chief Draft Analyst Tony Pauline's scouting report on 2020 NFL Draft prospect CB Darnay Holmes of the UCLA Bruins.

2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Darnay Holmes, CB, UCLA Bruins

Physical cornerback who displays next-level ball skills. Quick-footed in his backpedal, smoothly flips his hips and sticks with receivers everywhere on the field. Stays step for step with opponents, positions himself to break up throws and works to defend passes. Has a nice burst to the ball out of his plant and quickly closes to the action. Flies around the field and gives effort against the run.

Hesitant and sometimes late to react. Easily blocked from the action. Loses out to bigger receivers.

Holmes played well in 2019 and went on to have a solid week of practice at the Senior Bowl. He possesses the size and speed and enough ball skills to line up in nickel packages at the next level.
