Anyway, I've haven't seen enough of Slay, only because I don't think the Texans will draft a CB.
Can he play press?
He's pretty good in man coverage, because he seems to do a good job of anticipating and obviously his quickness and speed is top notch. He's not really a press guy, although he does have the aggressive attitude that is necessary to learn it, the long arms too. He comes across as a natural in pass coverage and does a good job of separating the ball and receiver.
What is hurting him is lack of experience. Compared to a guy like Xavier Rhodes, he is quite inexperienced. He also needs to work on his tackling technique. He has all the natural ability that you would want to work with though.
Edit: Forgot to add that he has alot of pick 6 potential. He has KR/PR type skills with the ball in his hands. This is the kind of guy that could change the whole game with a momentum snatching pick 6.
