Scouting Report

Size and athleticism seem to be central to his appeal. But Finnessy is also versatile. He started playing cornerback as a sophomore, when he was 6’3” and 190 lbs. He has since added about 35 lbs. to his frame, without sacrificing speed, and has remained at cornerback, where his high school coaching staff believes him to be a shutdown corner at that level. Finnessy has also played fullback and wide receiver. In college, he will likely end up at outside linebacker, where he can cover a lot of ground and even drop back into coverage without being a liability.
