  • Though a number of scouts and NFL team’s have him projected at the CB position…his skill sets dictate the FS position his best chance of success transitioning to the NFL level
  • He is solid at all facets of the game
  • Who consistently displays good football IQ…and effectively diagnoses plays pre-snap & during the development of plays
  • He maintains good location of the ball throughout plays on the field
  • He displays an aggressive mindset when pursuing ball carriers
  • He is not a player who shies away from contact
  • He displays an effective & aggressive style when running down coverage kicks on special teams…which should only add to his value as a prospect for some NFL team’s





  • As a projected CB prospect…he lacks the overall athleticism needed…the footwork…and on the ball quickness to succeed at a high level at the NFL level
  • He is fundamentally sound…but lacks the necessary skill sets to be considered a top tier CB prospect at next level
  • He effectively diagnoses plays pre-snap & during development of plays….but many times lacks the necessary athletic skills to finish on plays
  • Where is the instant burst in & out of cuts making his way to ball?
  • He lacks the lateral quickness in change of direction situations when pursuing the ball
  • He is not exactly the sure tackler his press clippings say he is…but more of a solid tackler than an upper tier tackler his draft projection dictates
  • He lacks the pop on initial contact with ball carriers to consistently slow their momentum…as more of a one shoulder side tackler
  • He is a wildly inconsistent tackler in space when utilized from the CB position
  • His lack of footwork & tight hips…make him a liability in pass defense when projecting him at the CB position
  • He lacks the on field catch-up speed needed in downfield pass defense as CB
  • When the opportunity present itself…he lacks the consistency in his hands to bring in TO’s that come his direction





1st Round (Top 10)





3rd Round





  • Fitzpatrick will be a solid performer at the NFL level…but in no means will he be an impact player his draft status suggest him to be.
