Analysis

Strengths

Productive three-year starter. Has a 37 1/2-inch vertical jump.

Weaknesses

Has limitations in coverage -- lacks awareness in zones and burst to keep phase with receivers. Not quick off spots. Low-percentage tackler (misses too many). Marginal athletic ability. Has been slowed by injuries. Poor 20-yard short-shuttle (4.52 seconds) and three-cone drill times (7.62 seconds), indicating very limited agility and change of direction.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Functional college football player lacking the football-playing speed, lateral agility and cover skills desired to compete with NFL receivers.
