    Strong Points: Plays man on inside receivers and equally efficient in zone. Very good ball skills and hands -- adjusts like a receiver. Fills the alley vs run with physicality and fearlessness. Solid tackler who hits and wraps. Very good instincts and reactions.

    Weak Points: Appears to lack ideal S size. Timed speed might be only adequate for the position.

    The Way We See It: Hooker was a highly productive two-year starter with four interceptions and 65 total tackles last season after two picks and 56 tackles in 2017. He plays deep or up in the box with impressive instincts, rarely getting caught out of position. Flashes mirror and turn-and-run ability when locking up the slot. Hooker's ball reactions and hands are among the best at his position this year. When we add in his ability to come up and play the run aggressively, Hooker should start as a rookie for most clubs. The only real potential concerns are size and speed for a safety.
