    Strong Points: Outstanding speed and measurables. Makes the plays he is supposed to make. Will come up to support the run. Consistent tackler. Adequate zone player. He's a former corner who can transition quickly. Good hands.

    Weak Points: Lacks top instincts and can be slow to react to things in front of him. Seldom see him in man. Often gives too much cushion to receivers. Ball reactions are average.

    The Way We See It: Redwine has all the physical tools we look for in an NFL safety as far as size, speed, play strength and explosiveness, but he doesn't play up to those measurables. He is a good player but far from a dominant one. The main reason is his instincts are average. He can be slow reacting and doesn't anticipate, thus he gives up plays he should make. Despite being a former corner, his man-cover skills are average. Redwine is better in zone but often gives too much cushion. He will support the run and is an adequate-to-good tackler but not a blow-up hitter. I see him as a backup and special teams player who may ascend into a starter in time. He may get drafted higher than my grade because of his outstanding measurables.
