Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: Iloka possesses all of the physical tools to develop into a frontline playmaker, but he needs to play with more urgency and toughness. If the light comes on, the Bengals might have landed a solid starter for years at the position.

  • 6'4" Height
  • 34 1/2" Arm Length
  • 225LBS. Weight
  • 9 5/8" Hands

Overview

Iloka has been a very productive player for Boise State and has been a factor for the Broncos since arriving in 2008. He is a superb zone defender who understands how to diagnose and react to plays. He is the quarterback of the secondary and has length to make plays and the speed to give him range in zone. He should be a backup and contribute early on, and he carries third-round value.

Analysis

Strengths

Iloka can diagnose a play and be in position in zone. He aligns very deep but has the speed to react and get involved when he needs to. He takes off once he makes a decision. He has good body control to break down and tackle or leap to make a play on the ball. He is reliable at making the interception when in front of it and comes down hard to meet running backs in run support.

Weaknesses

Iloka can struggle when having to mirror in man. He doesn't give up deep plays because he plays so far back, but this could also be considered a knock on him because he likely will have to align closer to the line of scrimmage in the NFL.
