Ideal combination of size and athleticism to play press or off-man coverage. Very explosive and twitchy. Knows how to use length to his advantage on the boundary. Keeps a good base in the backpedal. Can flip his hips and run. Has the speed to run with fast receivers. Great acceleration/burst allows for easy transitions. Extremely confident and competitive. Plays with toughness. Comes up to tackle. Soft hands and can play the ball in the air. Skillset should allow him to have success in zone-heavy schemes. Relatively new to the game. Became an impact player in one season at Temple.



Will need to clean up his technique some against NFL talent. Should use his hands more to redirect in press coverage. Reaction time is average. Too grabby on downfield passes. Doesn’t always get his head around to locate the ball.


NFL comparison

Darqueze Dennard – Even though Dennard has moved into the slot for Cincinnati, the former first-round pick is similar to Rock Ya-Sin in terms of body type and play style as a guy that can play press or off-man coverage.



Overall, Rock Ya-Sin is a competitive, man-to-man cornerback with prototypical size and athleticism. He needs to clean up his technique, but Ya-Sin can be an elite defender if he reaches his full potential.
