One of the better short-route anticipators in the draft, Lassiter gets out of his breaks in a hurry to make plays on the ball. In covering plays downfield, he holds real estate in opposing receivers’ hip pockets while remaining clean from penalties. Lassiter can struggle when sticking with complex route concepts downfield, as he doesn’t move as well laterally as he does vertically in coverage. In the run game, Lassiter is a willing and capable tackler but struggles in getting through blocks.

OVERVIEW: A "dog" both literally from his days with the Bulldogs and figuratively with his high motor, Lassiter brings tenacity and passion to the cornerback position that showed up on Saturdays in big energy moments for Georgia. Pulled straight out of Alabama country in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where he played his high school ball, Lassiter decided to return to his home state to play for head coach Kirby Smart, suiting up in 44 games over three seasons.
