Teams and fans want to know as much as possible about draft prospects. I joined them in this quest and caught up with the people who know the most about these players, their coaches.
School: Michigan State
Coach: Harlon Barnett
What are Trae’s three key strengths?
“He’s patient, he’s fast and he’s a good tackler.
The patience part comes with our defense, our cornerbacks are press cornerbacks a lot of the time and he has good patience at the line of scrimmage to get his hands on the receivers, which makes him a good cover guy. Also, he can run like the wind and he showed this at the combine. Finally, he’s a good tackler so that when guys are in space he can get them on the ground.”
