Booth was an impact player for the Clemson Tigers over the last two seasons. He is now headed to the NFL Draft.
As a recruit out of Georgia, Booth was rated at five stars and chose to attend Clemson. He played sparingly as a freshman, recording four tackles. Booth stepped into the starting lineup as a sophomore making an impact with two interceptions and four passes defended. The Tigers made the College Football Playoff but lost to Ohio State. As a junior, Booth totaled three interceptions and five passes defended. The Tigers won 10 games and capped the year off with a win in the Cheez-It Bowl.
Following the season, Booth declared for the NFL Draft. He is projected to be a first-round pick.
Andrew Booth Strengths
Booth has good size for a corner. He stands at 6-foot and 194 pounds, which means he won’t need to add too much more to his frame in the NFL.. He has good play strength that comes as a product of his size. To go with his size, he also has good length with 31.5-inch arms. This allows him to play aggressively.
His eyes in zone coverage are very good. He keeps his eyes on the quarterback and reads where the ball may go. After the quarterback decides where he is going with the ball, Booth can react quickly and make plays. His physicality helps make him a solid press-zone cornerback.
Booth has really good ball skills. As noted he can break on the ball well from zone coverage, but he can also do the same in man-to-man coverage. Once he gets close enough, he attacks the catch point well. He can get pass breakups, but also can get interceptions and is a threat to return them because of his athleticism.
Andrew Booth Weaknesses
Booth can struggle with some of the faster receivers in the class. His hips are tight so when he has to turn and run vertically it can slow him down. He is quick in short areas, but his speed isn’t the greatest. Booth will need to have good technique and physicality to combat speedy receivers.
When he is getting beat, Booth will get grabby. He picked up way too many penalties at Clemson. It is in an attempt to keep up with good route-runners and faster players, but he needs to keep his hands off and try to play more cleanly at the next level.
Booth only had one full season as a starter and is one of the cornerbacks with the least amount of experience in the class. COVID shortening the 2020 season is one of the main reasons. He has solid awareness and IQ, but it would’ve been nice to see more tape out of him at Clemson.
