Davon House is a good CB prospect that isn’t being talked about a whole lot despite being highly rated. He has the size, the speed and the hips to excel at corner in the NFL. He’s productive and willing in run support. He’s not a great tackler though and he takes poor angles in run support. He also has to clean up his transition as he too often flips his hips at the wrong time and it gets him off-balance. He needs to be more consistent because he does have good footwork.
