NEGATIVES: Possesses marginal speed and average skills in pursuit. Struggles in coverage and does not show good awareness when the pass is in the air.
ANALYSIS: Mapp showed significant improvement as a senior and has positioned himself to be a late-round selection. He's best suited for a system that allows him to flow to the action and gives him a free shot to the play.
