Analysis

Strengths

Good linear athleticism -- field fast when he's playing downhill. Effective box defender. Physical tackler. Shows good hands to intercept. Generally takes good angles in pursuit. Special-teams mentality. Three-year starter and two-time captain. Matured considerably over four years. Cares about the game.

Weaknesses

Lacks overall body length and has short arms and small hands. Does not always arrive under control to tackle in space. Too often launches himself into ball carriers instead of wrapping up. Mismatched against receivers and miscast in deep zone -- slow to transition and lets receivers behind him. Average range and anticipation. Strong safety only.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Compactly built, tough, physical strong safety who likes to hit, but coverage deficiencies limit his ceiling. Has a chance to carve a role as a box defender and special-teams contributor.
