Overview

Played cornerback and safety as a Florida prep. Was selected as an All-American Scholar by the United States Achievement Academy. Enrolled at North Carolina in 2010 and played in all 13 games as a true freshman, recording 20 tackles, five pass breakups and one interception. Started the final four games of the season at left cornerback and saw significant action on special teams. During fall practice prior to the '11 campaign, he tore a tendon in his left hand during a blocking drill (which necessitated surgery) and missed the first five games. In eight contests after his return (two starts), he had 16-2-0 with one tackle for loss. Made 11 starts in '12 and registered 76-9-1 with four tackles for loss, one sack and one forced fumble. Missed the season finale with a shoulder injury. Was healthy all season in '13, tallying 80-9-0 with 4.5 tackles for loss and one forced fumble in 13 starts.

Analysis

Strengths

Good speed and acceleration -- can turn and run deep. Competes in the air. Aggressive, productive tackler -- doesn't hesitate to support the run. Has worked as a gunner on special teams.

Weaknesses

Adequate size. Limited instincts and anticipation. Loses separation at the break point. Loses phase when his eyes get stuck in the backfield. Tends to clutch and grab. Dull plant-and-drive. Was not a playmaker -- recorded just two career INTs. Still has some maturing to do.

Draft Projection

Rounds 5-6

Bottom Line

Fairly nondescript cornerback who does not excel in man or zone coverage. Speed and tackling ability play well on special teams, where he will have to stand out to have a chance.
