Kelvin Joseph

Height: 6’1″

Weight: 192 lbs

Strengths: A transfer from LSU, Kelvin Joseph possesses the ideal size and more than ideal length for the position. Displays quickness off the ball. Shows patience in his drop back with zone coverage. Joseph has tremendous ball skills. Uses his length to his advantage with the ball in the air. Joseph has good reactions in the open field and can flip his hips smoothly and with ease. Has nice recovery speed to pair with his fluid hips giving him the ability to bail himself out. Football IQ is a strength of his as well. He uses the boundary well as an extra defender.

Weaknesses: Joseph is very raw in press coverage. Shows a little too much aggression at the line of scrimmage and can get caught flat-footed. His footwork can be a little clunky at times. Tackling could stand to use some improvement. Needs to show some more aggressiveness in that area.

Kelvin Joseph is a very intriguing cornerback prospect. Displaying good size and great length, Joseph is an ideal Seattle Cover 3 zone corner. He does have the potential to be successful in a press man scheme but he is a project in that style. I could see teams valuing him as high as the back half of the first round but I wouldn’t take him until the latter half of the second.
