If developing camaraderie is as important in the secondary as they say, it should come as no surprise that former college and high school teammates Redwine and Jaquan Johnson are expected to hear their names called in the 2019 NFL Draft.
While perhaps not as well-known as his two-time All-ACC teammate, Johnson, Redwine was a standout himself. He started the past three seasons, finishing his career on a high note with a personal best 64 tackles and three interceptions in 2018.
Experienced at outside cornerback, nickelback and safety, Redwine's versatility (not to mention the explosive 4.44-second speed he showed at the Combine) is sure to attract plenty of interest on Day Three.
Well-built defensive back with broad shoulders, long arms (32 3/8") and a tapered middle with light feet. Lined up all over the field for Miami, showing the size, agility and awareness to play a similar role in the NFL. Good balance and burst out of his backpedal when lined up in man to man, showing the ability to explode forward to challenge underneath routes. Efficient transition out of his backpedal to run vertically, showing good speed for the position.
Keeps his eyes trained on the quarterback and shows good spatial awareness of what's happening around him, dropping his primary assignment when the ball leaves the quarterback's hand. Good timing and body control to make the extended interception, using his length and soft hands to high-point passes.
Knack for producing turnovers with five interceptions and five fumbles (three forced) over the past two seasons alone. Times his blitzes well, anticipating the snap count and showing good body control and effort to scrape the corner and pursue from the back side.
Not always the most aesthetically pleasing tackler but generally effective, showing an explosive pop on contact when he has a runway. More of a jack-of-all-trades, master of none-type with a sporadic strike zone, bouncing off some ballcarriers with heavy collisions or swiping at the legs of ballcarriers and failing to wrap his arms.
Projection: Fourth Round
