Injuries: Missed one game in 2017 with an injury.
History: Three-star CB prospect from Miami. Was teammates with Jaquan Johnson at Miami Killian.
Strengths: Good length. Fluid runner in space. Aggressive in pursuit, motor runs hot and brings a swagger to the defense. Good blitzer, flies in hot. Has good eyes and reacts quick to plays in front of him. Good ball skills, has shown the ability to high point balls. Dangerous with the ball in his hands. Cornerback history is evident in man coverage.
Weaknesses: Can get turned around in man coverage vs shiftier receivers. Sustainable to getting beat deep, especially on double moves. Hips seem a little tight. Not as comfortable as a deep safety as he is playing underneath. Could get stronger. Doesn’t have much pop to him.
Overview: Redwine is an instinctive and aggressive slot safety. He plays better when facing the LOS, than he does as a single high. The former CB is best when he’s matched up in the slot. He is much faster to the ball, running down hill. He has starter upside in this league, and could get some playing time early on.
