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…

WEAKNESSES: Juan Thornhill will not blow you away with elite athletic traits…lack of explosiveness…his lack of high-end speed is why he was moved from CB to S…his tackling has been all over the place…needs a lot of refinement in that area…length will be a concern at the next level as he combats bigger, longer athletes…plays a bit too soft at times giving up the underneath stuff…

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…some are higher on Juan Thornhill than I am, but don’t get me wrong, I do like his game and how I believe he can adapt to the NFL game…I have him solidly in the 3rd round mix for the 2019 NFL D
