Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Gregory Junior is a RS Senior who has played 43 career games, including all 11 in 2021. Underrecruited HS prospect who worked into the rotation as a true freshman and never left. Under DC/LBs Coach Roy Thompson Jr. (fifth season) and DBs Coach Dionte Dean (third season), player is a RCB in a Zone-heavy base Cover 2 defense with Cover 3 and Quarters variations. Developmental CB you can win despite in a Man-based defense. Extremely fluid CB who is a projection at the next level. Has the athleticism to succeed, but needs an NFL strength program and a year to develop required instincts to see the field. Fluidity, COD, and burst make for interesting potential in the slot, but needs to shore up v Run.
