Beginning as a WR in college and transitioning to corner, Farley sat out the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. His 6'2” frame and length allows him to disrupt opposing pass catchers and play the ball when it is thrown his way.
He's versatile due to his size, and his man coverage skills will appeal to NFL teams - he can even be a fit if a team runs zone schemes. Farley has great body control and speed; it shows up on his tape, and playing WR gives him a competitive advantage. His hips are very fluid.
With his size and athleticism, he won’t find himself in many mismatches against NFL receivers. His athleticism allows him to match up well in man coverage, and he isn’t targeted a lot; he’s a legitimate threat to pick off a pass and run it home. The Hokie defender also has burning recovery speed down the field, and is aggressive between gaps as an effective run defender.
He sheds blockers well and wraps up the ball carrier's chest to make sure-fire tackles in space. The only issue is when he is off coverage with his back against a blocking WR; he is able to shed the block but can whiff on a tackle when a WR is crossing the middle of the field, requiring safety help.
