STRENGTHS - Meeks has the quickness and agility to get across the field quickly, which enables him to make plays when the ball carrier gets past the 3rd level before they can reach they reach the endzone. His ability to flip his hips could use some improvement but his ability is average and allows him to be an okay defender. Has the ability to play okay coverage and can close well on both the ball carrier and the route runner. Speed enables him to make plays in backside pursuit.
WEAKNESSES - Meeks needs to develop more awareness on the football field and react quicker to the play at hand. His athleticism is wasted as he does not show the smarts on the field. His main weakness is tackling as he fails to wrap up on the ball carrier and has a habit of hitting high or going for an arm tackle. His footwork can be quick but it can also be extremely choppy which cause problems when he needs to change direction & cannot do so smoothly.
SUMMARY - Meeks shows the quickness and speed that gives him the ability to make plays all over the field, but his football IQ seems to lack and therefore his quickness and speed are mostly wasted. He shows the ability to cover the defender well and shows the closing speed to get to the ball carrier or an open receiver quickly. Meeks also played on a poor Clemson secondary and his tackling would need to improve mightily as he lacks to wrap up and when he can go for the blow up hit he avoids doing so. Overall, Meeks is a good college player, but has not shown the tools to start in the NFL, which is why I would not draft him.
