On the Hoof: Looks like a smaller all-purpose back that will be hard to see when he hits the line-of-scrimmage. He has very muscular arms and forearms like Mr. Clean.
Needs Improvement: He needs work on man-to-man coverage and reading the quarterback's eyes. Joyner has been at safety his whole career and it looks like he will still be there as a senior.
Most Impressive: Is one of the biggest hitters pound-for-pound in the country, and he does have a short-term memory if he gets beat on a play.
Conclusion: The transition from safety to corner could take as long as two years, but there is little doubt that he will have a spot on most special teams earlier in his career because of his affinity for inflicting pain.
