Juan Thornhill Scouting Report

STRENGTHS: The first thing that I saw on the film when evaluating Juan Thornhill was that he never got beat deep…he always seemed to be in the right place, at the right time…Thornhill has experience at the CB position before transitioning to the safety spot…a savvy, high IQ football player…his read and react skills are high-end…he plays the game with great anticipation…good ball skills…does a good job to attack the football at it’s highest point and ward off receivers…good footwork… versatile prospect who can come down and cover WR out of the slot due to his experience as a CB…Juan Thornhill is yet another prospect who set the Scouting Combine on fire…his workout was simply insane and made the scouting community run back to the film to watch more on him…

WEAKNESSES: Juan Thornhill will need a lot of refinement at the NFL level…Thornhill has been an inconsistent tackler throughout his collegiate career at Virginia…is Juan Thornhill more of an athlete than he is a football player..? Thornhill can be beaten by speed…

COMP: Patrick Chung

OVERALL: Juan Thornhill is yet another chess piece that you can move around your seconfary to match up with NFL offenses…just be careful—he can find success, but only against certain match-ups…I would not match him up with the speedier options at WR…Thornhill will likely get left in their wake…you do like the high IQ and you can see it translate on to the football field on the film…Juan Thornhill’s workout truly was eye-opening and had us evaluate him in a different light…once thought to be a 2nd-3rd rounder, Juan Thornhill now finds himself firmly in the 2nd round mix…
