Emmanuel Forbes Draft Profile


Forbes often does a good job in press coverage, thanks to effectively jamming receivers at the line. He has crazy speed which makes it hard for receivers to shake him in man coverage. Forbes reads the eyes of the quarterback and has good instincts when it comes to pre-play recognition and instincts. He does a good job high-pointing the ball, and his tall frame helps him match up with bigger receivers.


Emmanuel Forbes certainly has some of the tools to make it at the next level, however, he has yet to put them together. While he does a good job watching the quarterback’s eyes, he is often over-reliant on it, which can result in him appearing frozen on the field. He tries to anticipate too often which leads to him either abandoning his zone entirely or letting his man go free. His motor can be questioned in the run game, as he often watches the ball carrier come to him. Forbes also shies away from contact at times which makes him a vulnerability on blitzes or running plays.
