BIO: Two-year starter who posted 60/2/8 as a senior after 28/4/8 the prior year. Track and field sprint champion in college.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized, athletic prospect who's displayed a steady line of improvement the past two seasons. Tough, comes up the field to defend the run and not afraid to mix it up. Physical, uses his frame to box out opponents and works to defend the pass. Displays a good move on the ball and to his credit relatively instinctive. Easily stays step for step downfield with opponents and quick locating the ball in the air.
NEGATIVES: Slow reacting to receivers moves off the line and loses a half step in transition. Not quick reading receivers eyes or getting his head back around to make a play on the ball. A bit inconsistent.
ANALYSIS: A cornerback with outstanding size/speed numbers, Routt is still a project in the works and a prospect who needs a lot of work. Could catch on as a dime back and may never develop into a starter yet could be a quality player in the NFL if he improves his instincts.
