Though Arnold has played on the outside, his questionable size and length would make him better suited for the slot. In man coverage, Arnold can be too reliant on his hands instead of his feet, which makes him susceptible to getting more penalties.
Arnold's habit of opening his hips too early makes him vulnerable to head fakes from opposing receivers. His over-aggressiveness in these cases is seen when he is playing off-man coverage, when flaws in his overall technique are exposed.
In zone coverage, Arnold has made much progress but needs considerable work in processing and anticipating crossing routes. In these cases, he needs to have more faith in his instincts and athleticism.
