Here is 247Sports evaluation on Covington:

Muscular build with high hips and broad shoulders. Tremendous length and physical upside. Very good ball skills and reach to limit passing windows. Aggressive defender in one-on-one situations. High comfort level in coverage, with the reactions to stick to wideouts. Versatility and size to play safety. Closes quickly on the football. Could improve tackling technique and be smoother through backpedal. Candidate to be multi-year starter at Power Five level, with chance to make early impact. Likely develops into an NFL Draft Day 3 selection.
