Height – 6’1″

A 4-star recruit started his journey at Colorado where he maintained very good analytics like yards per catch, he didn’t land his first interception until this season. His athleticism covers up for his lack of game-changing DB play.

Defensive Back Pros
Christian Gonzalez athletic score is off the charts and definitely has the fluidity to keep up with any route in the tree.
Extremely low missed tackle rate of 4.9% per PFF.
Clocked a 4.38 at the NFL combine and showed that speed on the field when recovering.
Defensive Back Cons
Sometimes he is delayed in recognizing the play in Zone Coverage in particular. Isn’t the kind of guy that jumps routes and creates turnovers. Classic cover corner.
Only 4 career interceptions and a good amount of tape that shows him just not looking for the ball.
Gonzalez did make 13 stops in run support per PFF but the thin frame will likely hinder this at the next stage.
