Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Plays with a chip on his shoulder and has the right mindset for the position. Waynes always keeps his eyes alert to quickly diagnose and break on break on the ball with natural ballskills to make plays.

WEAKNESSES: Thin-limbed and is ?all arms and legs? with his lanky build, clearly lacking ideal bulk and muscle definition. He is too easily pushed around by wide receivers, too much of an ankle biter in run support and needs to develop his functional strength.

He needs to stay balanced in his transition and his technique tends to run hot/cold due to his tendency to bite the apple and freelance.

COMPARES TO: As a sophomore, Waynes played like a young Kyle Fuller and if he can introduce more discipline to his game moving forward, he will have bright future in East Lansing and the NFL.

Player Overview

Waynes will help cushion the loss of Darqueze Dennard and is now the top cornerback on the roster. A first-year starter last season, he finished his sophomore year with three interceptions and eight passes defended and quickly made a name for himself in the conference.

He's a complete corner." - Michigan State football
