POSITIVES: Athletic corner with terrific size and skill. Fluid pedaling in reverse, quickly transitions to run with opponents, and positions himself to defend the throw. Reads receivers. eyes and quickly gets his head back around, locating the ball in the air. Possesses a burst of speed. Shows a nice move to the ball and good hands for the interception. For the most part instinctive and works hard to make positive plays.
NEGATIVES: Does not show the second gear despite his 40 time. Not a physically strong cornerback.
ANALYSIS: Porter is a natural cover man with good ball skills. Offers starting potential at the next level if he's willing to do the little things necessary to complete his game.
