Antoine Winfield Jr.
You can really tell he was around the game his whole life and emanates his dad Antoine Winfield Sr. on the field. It has made him a solid player in every aspect of the game. He has great coverage and ball skills, as well as being very active in stopping the run. He is one hell of a blitzer too and punishes any RB who has to block him. All around Winfield is a tough and smart player, who will make an instant impact.
He really doesn't have many weaknesses. He probably won't be a combine All-Star, but his on field attributes make up for his average measurables. The only thing that sticks out to me is his inability to shed blocks when a lineman is engaged with him.

Overall I think you will be getting an instant impact player and depending on the situation, he could be a leader very early on. He is very comparable to an Eric Weddle, because he isn't going to wow you just by looking at him or his measurables, but is a real problem for offenses come game time. He will probably end up being drafted in the mid-early 2nd round, which would be perfect for teams like Baltimore or San Francisco at the end of the 1st round. He was a 2019 Unanimous All-American, First Team All Big 10, Big 10 Defensive Back of the Year, Bronko Nagurski Award finalist. 2018-19 Academic All-American.

When he is playing this way, it's when you really get to see not only his physical ability, but his mental ability as well. Playing zone is his bread and butter. Though playing off man was where he showcase his abilities better, a zone scheme best fits him. Being such a smart player, playing zone gives him an advantage in making plays. He has more freedom to take chances going for an INT, or delivering a big hit. Love watching him hand fight with receivers, you can tell he spent a lot of time hand fighting with his dad. He's an overall tough player and can really make that point fighting for the ball with receivers. Like I have said a few times already, I think he has the best hips of all safeties in the draft. His ability to change direction and make a play is fantastic. Didn't really see him press much, but he is a physical player and sho
