- Recognition skills when he's in a zone look are very good. Sees the play develop and fires to the ball to limit the yardage gained.
- Strong tackler in a 1-on-1 setting. Makes a good initial hit and brings down the ball carrier for the most part.
- Displays a good nice burst to blow up a play. Solid closing speed.
- A compact and strongly built cornerback.

- Struggles in man-to-man scenarios.
- When in press, needs to use his body a bit more and re-route the receiver.
- If he gets beat, he'll struggle to get back to his man. Below average recovery speed.

Special Notes:
- Named a Big East Academic All-Star twice.

Projection: 5th to 6th round
- Tandy looks the part of a smart player with the want-to, but with physical limitations holding him back.  He can be a solid special teams contributor early on and be a depth corner for a team that plays zone a majority of the time. He'll struggle on man-to-man teams.
