*MSA Rating: The average score of a prospect’s market share production, strength of schedule and age percentile scores

*Explosive Lower Body Strength Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s vertical, broad jump and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Speed Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s 40-yard dash and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Flexibility Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s short shuttle, 3-Cone and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

 

Metric Analysis: Ahkello Witherspoon has a Pro Bowl potential profile. Above average pass deflection market share with above average athleticism. He misses the mark at All-Pro upside due to his age, solo tackle market share and speed/flexibility. However, he has the right combination of traits to be a strong projection as a starter. Thus, I’d project Witherspoon as a long-term starter to potential Pro Bowl caliber cornerback.

ATH Comp: Kyle Fuller
