Arnold can lay a claim as arguably the top cover corner in the draft with his press off the line and quick change of direction that keeps him in-stride with receivers. He drives to the catch point, makes plays in the backfield and flats, and shows IQ in short-zone situations While he does excel in zone packages in front of the sticks, expanding his zone downfield has caused Arnold to be late to the ball or fail to account for plays coming across the field into his zone. His aggressive cover style also leads to penalties.

OVERVIEW: Starting in 25 games over two seasons for the Crimson Tide under head coach Nick Saban, Arnold accounted for six interceptions, including five in 2023, and separated himself as one of the nation's top defensive backs with a Freshman All-American nod in 2022 and an AP All-American honor in 2023. Originally from Tallahassee, Fla., Arnold stayed in SEC country to play for Alabama over major in-state offers from Miami, Florida and hometown Florida State.
