Overview

Stuckey is a short well built player with good athleticism. He was the Jayhawks’s most productive defender in 2009 racking up 93 tackles from the safety position. Stuckey has good quickness, agility and balance but does have great pure speed. He is best in combination zone coverage’s and leverages the ball well from off the hash. He is quick to fill the alley versus the run. Good instincts but average ball skills with the ball in the air. Stuckey is a good overall football player that is likely to contribute as a backup in the secondary and on special teams.

Analysis

Strengths

Stuckey is a good combination of strength and athleticism for the safety position. Displays good range in zone coverage and coming up against the run. Has been productive in his career, especially as a senior. Is an instinctive, tough competitor who isn’t afraid to stick his nose in on run support. Was durable during his time in college.

Weaknesses

Stuckey lacks ideal height for the position. Can struggle defending against taller receivers due to his height and average ball skills. Only possesses average catch up speed and can be beaten deep over the top.
