Draft Analysis:

"That is a Raider pick right there. Think Brandon Browner of the Seahawks. He's a big kid, but with significant off-field issues." -- Mike Mayock

  • 10 1/4" Hands

Overview

Has a daughter. The California prep earned letters in football, basketball and track, graduating high school in 2007. After not playing in 2008, he enrolled at Cerritos (Calif.) College in '09 and played in 11 games at free safety, recording 24 tackles, three pass breakups and four interceptions with one-half tackle for loss and one forced fumble. Earned Southern California Football Association Northern Conference Defensive Player of the Year honors in '10, tallying 37-5-7 with one forced fumble, two blocked kicks and a fumble recovery for a touchdown. Blocked a field goal attempt by Bakersfield College on the last play of the game, finishing the play by receiving a lateral at the 35-yard line and scoring the game-winning touchdown. Arrived at Utah in '11 and saw action in the season's first five games (including a start at free safety against USC), recording 12-1-0. Sustained a season-ending shoulder injury in the Arizona State game. Missed the entire '12 season due to extensive rehab of the shoulder, which required surgery. Was healthy in '13 and started all 12 games at cornerback, totaling 37-12-1 with one-half tackle for loss. Returned an interception 19 yards for a touchdown against UCLA.

Analysis

Strengths

Rare size with extremely long arms and large hands -- looks every bit the part. Very good athletic ability. Explosive -- recorded 39-inch vertical jump and 10-foot, 9-inch broad jump. Versatile and can play safety or corner.

Weaknesses

Lacks the physicality and toughness desired at safety. Does not support the run aggressively or play to his size. Average transitional quickness. Footwork needs refinement. Recorded the worst 3-cone time (7.29 seconds) among cornerbacks at the combine. Will be a 25-year-old rookie. Still has some junior-college work habits and needs to learn what it means to be a pro.

Draft Projection

Rounds 2-3

Bottom Line

Big, athletic, press-man corner with intriguing dimensions and movement skills. However, he does not consistently play to his size, needs to adopt a professional approach to the game and will have to be micromanaged. Would ideally fit in Seattle or Jacksonville.
