Strengths

Trent McDuffie’s fantastic body control, agility and burst make him a pest in coverage. McDuffie can play both man and zone effectively and he has a knack for hugging routes tightly. He reads the eyes of the quarterback well and will quickly fly to the ball carrier and lay a hit. His competitive energy makes him a great asset and his quick “twitchy” speed makes him a tough guy for receivers to shake.

Weaknesses

One of the biggest knocks on McDuffie is his size. In the NFL, his size could make it difficult for him to match up against bigger receivers, especially with the lack of competition he faced while at Washington. He oftentimes waits too long to anticipate a throw which leads to few chances at interceptions.
