Overview

Sash brings impressive football intelligence and excellent effort in run support to the table but probably lacks the range and athleticism in coverage to become a full-time starter. However, he'll likely provide excellent depth and contribute on special teams coverage units. Can play the deep half but is a liability in centerfield or when asked to matchup with tight ends or slots in man coverage. Does possess hands when he limits separation and is around the football. Flies to the ball in run support and is a sound tackler. Coachable player who will learn your system quickly. Sash carries a mid-round grade.


Strengths

Sash has nice size. Displays good awareness and football smarts. Stays in solid position. Comes up hard and fast in run support. Doesn't over pursue and is a reliable tackler. Comfortable in deep half zone coverage. Flashes impressive ball skills and comes down with interceptions. Good intangibles, hard-worker.

Weaknesses

Struggles in coverage, especially man coverage. Ability to play the point is below average. Does not appear fluid when shadowing in man or flipping his hips to turn and run. Can be boxed out by taller tight ends with ball skills. Susceptible to the double-move.

Grade

5.5
