Prepped in Louisiana. Began his college career at Memphis in 2010 and played in nine contests (six starts), recording nine tackles, one pass breakup and two interceptions with one tackle for loss. Missed two games with a hip pointer. Transferred to Southeastern Louisiana for the 2011 season to be closer to his family. Logged 15 tackles, two pass breakups and one INT in eight games (seven starts) and missed three games with an ankle injury. Made 11 of 12 starts (all but Sam Houston) in 2012 and managed 27 tackles, nine pass breakups and one INT with two tackles for loss. Had an injury-plagued 2013, missing the final six games with turf toe, and logged 15 tackles, eight pass breakups and no INTs in eight starts. Did not work out at the combine (foot).
Experienced in press and off-man coverage and has slot experience. Good route recognition to shadow and mirror and ride the hip pocket. Secure open-field tackler. Nice football intelligence. Serves as a jammer on special teams.
Has short arms and small hands. Average athlete. Limited weight-room strength. Can do a better job fending off blocks. Can be overaggressive jumping routes in front of him. Could stand to improve eye discipline -- too easily manipulated and could improve positioning. Inconsistent technique. Does not carry a lot of swagger and is not a ballhawk.
Good-sized, press-man corner with developing instincts and enough cover skill to warrant a chance to develop.
