Vincent aligns at Cornerback for the Wolverine defense. He’s a sufficient level athlete with average agility, movement skills and good body control. In the run game he’s a willing tackler. When presented with the opportunity he will come up and secure the tackle. In the passing game, he shows flashes of being a good re-router at the line of scrimmage. He uses his good length to stab and can stay in phase in this regard. He lacks the quickness to close at the top of the route. He also lacks good deep speed. In the NFL press heavy, zone coverage teams may value his skill set slightly higher than man coverage teams. He has some physical limitations that could be mitigated with scheme.
Ideal Role: backup player with Safety swing and special teams upside
Scheme Fit: Press, zone heavy teams

Games watched: IU, OSU, WASH
Best Game Studied: Wash
Worst Game Studied: OSU
Man Coverage: This is an area of his game that won’t be a strength. He lacks good quickness to close at the top of the route. He also lacks good deep speed to stay in phase in man situations.
Zone Coverage: He’s much better in zone both from a press and off position. He is better in press when he can reroute and not have a huge concern of lacking safety help. He can pass off routes and shows an understanding of route combinations.
Ball Skills: He has below average ball skills. He appears to struggle with the ball in the air, particularly with his back turned. He also doesn’t get his hands on many balls.
Tackling: No issues in this regard. He could disengage with more urgency as a bigger cornerback, but nothing alarming in this aspect.
Versatility: He lacks true versatility. His skill set suggests that he is an outside only corner that cannot be moved inside in sub. He may have some value at safety with coverage upside.
Competitive Toughness: He could improve the consistency in this regard. Especially at the catch point. He could close with more urgency to get his hands on the football
Functional Athleticism: He isn’t a great athlete in terms of movement skills. He doesn’t close with quickness nor does he lack good deep speed. He struggles in his transitioning when playing “off” as well.
Football IQ: While in zone he seems to have a good understanding of route combinations. He easily passes off routes. He also shows a good understanding of playing with deep help in zone
Run Defending: He will come up and tackle when presented with the chance. When he’s the force player, he has no issues in this regard.
Length: He displays good length for the position. This is evident in his ability to stab at the line of scrimmage. If he had more closing quickness his length could benefit him more in contested catch situations.
