I disagree with your assessment of "lacks good hands and jitterbug quickness". His hands seem fine, especially on a couple plays where he attacked the ball at it's highest point taking it away from a defender. Quite honestly, his hands are probably better than half the current Illini receivers. As far as quickness, I see good acceleration with his first step and fluid hips on his juke moves he makes on defenders with good balance and power able to bounce off tackles. He's very physical on his blocks which is a big plus, some wide outs shy away from this. With all this, yes, I could see him in 2-3 yrs. being a solid Big corner or safety. Time will tell what plans Lovie has.
