Weaknesses:


Lloyd has a tendency to get stuck on blocks when pass rushing from the edge. He needs to do a better job of lowering his pad level when engaging against offensive linemen and using his hands to shed blocks in order to be more productive in pass rush situations. In coverage, Lloyd is somewhat flat-footed when peddling backwards, and he has some issues shadowing receivers. In general, his coverage skills should improve with more experience, as currently he is unproven in this domain.
