Player Notes Pros

  • Does some impressive things for a guy that has only played CB for two seasons

  • While he’s certainly measured, Igbinoghene works to stay leveraged over the top

  • He has explosive click & close ability to work back to the football efficiently 

  • Scrappy in press coverage, with plenty of pop in his hands, balance, & body control An

  • An incredible willingness to crowd the release point that makes him successful

  • Outstanding functional strength, impressive body control that shows up at top of routes 

  • Loves the physicality playing through contact, at the catch point & when tackling

  • Willing participant in the run game & aggressively works through contact & triggers

  • Highly competitive in everything he does, never takes a single play off 

  • Averaged 27.3 yards per kick return for his career with two touchdowns

  • Athleticism should make him a four-phase special teams contributor year one 

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • He’s definitely still new to the position & his natural feel is still developing

  • Calculated processing & delayed responses will be exploited at the next level 

  • Measured steps rob him of fluidity and there are false steps present.

  • Despite being a converted wide receiver, the ball production has only been modest.

  • Still developing that feel for tracking the football while being mindful of assignments
