Analysis

Strengths

Good size, movement and flexibility. Efficient plant and drive on throws in front of him. Shows the ability to swoop downhill and support the run. Tries for the strip (forced five fumbles as a senior). Asset in the building -- terrific character. Durable and experienced. Was a 21-year-old senior.

Weaknesses

Needs to bulk up and get stronger. Average instincts and anticipation -- can be a tick late to read and react. Poor center fielder. Manipulated by QBs. Unreliable last line of defense. Inconsistent open-field tackler. Average tackle strength -- catches contact. Strong safety only.

Bottom Line

Lean, athletic, finesse free safety with the chops to hold down a backup job in a system where he could react to plays in front of him, though he will have to demonstrate utility on special teams.
