Build

Does he have prototype size? What is body type? What is growth potential?

Well-built, cut athlete with adequate size and average length. Armour-Davis started just his redshirt junior season for Alabama. In prior years, he served as a rotational CB, kickoff coverage gunner, kickoff return blocker, and punt return jammer. He sustained injuries throughout his career: suffered a season-ending knee injury in week two of his freshman season, missed three games his redshirt sophomore season, and missed two games in his redshirt junior season.

Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

Above the line toughness in coverage and at the attack point. A willing and consistent tackler. Shows a good feel for routes in man coverage. With just one year of experience, he lacks the reps most corners have in this class.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Armour-Davis is a well-rounded athlete who combines adequate explosiveness with above the line long speed and play strength. His body control and deliberate feet enable adequate COD and burst to close. He is not a big corner but has the power and aggression to control routes at the LOS and down the field. He is physical in the attack point and can be depended on in run support.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

He spent most reps in man coverage. In press, he utilizes both inch and catch techniques. He is relatively consistent in inch - worked his feet without conceding much space at the LOS. He keeps his hips closed and stays on top with effective lateral shuffles. He incorporates quick one and two hand jams at the LOS, but average length causes him to lunge forward and open his stance to WRs. Lost reps in press when he sped up his feet to concede too much space, opened his stance or was overaggressive with his jam. Armour-Davis would switch his press technique depending on the game, using more catch. Here he hugged the LOS and relied more on his jam and adequate hip fluidity to stay on top of receivers. He works a slow backpedal in off coverage and opens his hips early in the route. With steady pad level, he wastes few steps driving on passes to make impact plays on the ball. He moves laterally and collisions well in off catch technique. Down the field, Armour-Davis is physical. He throws jabs at WRs to knock them off their line and leans with control to squeeze them to the sideline. While he showed adequate ball skills playing through WR’s hands, he earned PIs with over-aggression at the catch point.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Jaylon Armour-Davis entered Alabama as a consensus four-star recruit. After sustaining a season-ending knee injury his freshman year, he served as a key special teams player and rotational CB until he earned a starting role in his redshirt junior season. He missed games due to injury in three of his four seasons. In his only starting season, Armour-Davis earned All-SEC Second Team honors. He is a man cover corner competent in both press and off coverage. He leveraged above the line speed, plant/drive, and play strength to stay attached to receivers at the LOS and down the field. Despite the lack of reps, Armour-Davis has the athletic traits and technical capability to be a CB2 for a man-heavy scheme. He projects to be mid-Day two selection.
