Scouting Report: Trayvon Mullen, CB, Clemson

Fort Lauderdale, FL | 6012 | 188 | 4.37E | 2020

This prospect possesses an extremely raw skillset and young frame with plenty of room to grow but he has the potential to be the best cornerback to ever come out of the Tigers football program. He is blessed with great hands and ball instincts but his greatest attribute is his tremendous speed. Demonstrates fluid hip movement and change of direction ability, to go along with the length to matchup against taller defenders. His high-level skillset enabled him to work his way up the totem pole in a loaded Clemson secondary filled with plenty of future NFL talents and he would earn more playing time as the season progressed during his true freshman season. He finished with 15 tackles, including three on special teams, playing 115 snaps in 13 games. He utilizes his physicality and aggressiveness to jam wide outs at the line of scrimmage and is sure to help out in the run. However, he will need to continue to get bigger and sharpen his overall technique—he has already bulked up about 18 pounds heading into year two. The Florida native had 46 scholarship offers from just about every university imaginable coming out of high school. He is the cousin of Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson.
