2013: Second-team All-Big 12 selection. Was arrested on Sept. 26 for misdemeanor assault. 2012: Honorable mention All-Big 12 selection after starting all 13 games at nickelback. 2011: Honorable mention All-Big 12 selection after starting all 13 games at nickelback. 2010: Played in 11 games.



Very good size and straight-line speed. Is aggressive stepping downhill and supporting the run. Closes fast to the ball. Secure, wrap tackler. Takes efficient angles and is a reliable last line of defense. Good backside chase pursuit. Solid special-teams potential.


Very tight in the hips -- straight-linish. Pedals tall and is late transitioning. Average recovery speed. Limited cover skills and awareness. Marginal ball skills and small, shaky hands (four career INTs in three seasons as a starter). Very average football IQ -- takes an extra tick to sort out routes and digest what he sees. Narrow vision. Limited agility and change of direction in man coverage. See-and-go reactor (not instant or anticipatory diagnosing). Not a forceful tackler or explosive hitter. Cleared of charges, but September assault incident requires closer scrutiny.

Draft Projection

Rounds 4-5

Bottom Line

Box safety possessing the physical talent to compete in the NFL and even earn a starting job eventually if he can stay focused, commit to a playbook and hone his eyes. Should be able to factor readily on special teams. Coverage limitations will leave him vulnerable and would be best in a very simple scheme.
