Overview

Spent first three seasons at cornerback before moving to safety. 2013: Second on team with 127 tackles. 2012: Fifth on team with 57 tackles. Played in 12 games. 2011: Had both the team's defensive scores (fumble return touchdowns). 2010: Appeared in 12 games; played nickel back and special teams.

Analysis

Strengths

Lean, athletic build. Fluid and sudden with terrific balance. Outstanding speed -- carries receivers vertically and flies around the field. Sudden plant and drive. Can elevate to contend in the air and make athletic interceptions. Does not hesitate to support the run. Scheme versatile. Sharp mentally. Three-year starter. Rose to the occasion against better competition and produced big against Nebraska.

Weaknesses

Has very small hands. Gets lax with his technique. Inconsistent, subpar tackler as a safety. Average ball production. Performance is up and down.

Bottom Line

Fast, rangy, tough, loquacious defensive back who was miscast as a safety in his senior season, but projects best as a cornerback in the pros where his explosiveness and physicality will appeal to a wide range of teams. Should contribute readily on special teams and has eventual starter potential. Played his best football early in the season and tapered off late in the year.
