Overview

The California prep lettered for two years despite undergoing open heart surgery as a sophomore. As a true freshman in 2008, played in 11 games (one start) and recorded 35 tackles, one pass breakup and one interception. Returned five punts for 57 yards (11.4-yard average). Missed the 2009 season, as he needed surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left hip. Also ran into trouble when he bought a computer that had been stolen from the school; he pleaded guilty to receiving stolen property and was sentenced to 48 hours in jail. Returned to the field in 2010 and made 12 starts at cornerback, tallying 39 tackles, five pass breakups and no INTs with 5.5 tackles for loss, two sacks and two forced fumbles. Returned 19 punts for 197 yards (10.4) and no TDs. Missed one game with a concussion. Played in 14 games (13 starts) in 2011 and totaled 49 tackles, 13 pass breakups and four INTs with 1.5 tackles for loss. He also returned 11 punts for 138 yards (12.5) and one TD with a 65-yard touchdown against New Mexico State. Sat out the 2012 season as a medical redshirt after fracturing his right shoulder during the first week of camp, requiring surgery. Appeared in all 13 games (12 starts) in 2013 and had 42 tackles, eight pass breakups and four INTs with 1.5 tackles for loss and one sack. He also returned 21 punts for 267 yards (12.7). Returned a pair of interceptions for scores against Massachusetts (66 yards and 30 yards). Team captain. Did not work out at the combine because of a right knee (lateral meniscus) injury.

Analysis

Strengths

Outstanding size -- looks the part of an NFL defensive back with a sculpted physique. Equipped to jam. Has speed to carry receivers vertically. Good zone awareness and ball reactions. Good hands to intercept. Sets the edge in run support. Smart and instinctive. Confident and competitive. Was a productive punt returner and has worked as a gunner.

Weaknesses

Tweener traits. Pedals tight. Shows some stiffness in his pedal and transition. Footwork needs to be coached up. Does not explode out of transition or display burst to recover. Average pop on contact. Will be a 24-year-old rookie -- missed two full seasons because of hip and shoulder injuries.

Draft Projection

Rounds 4-5

Bottom Line

Smoother-than-explosive, height-weight-speed prospect who will draw the attention of Cover-2 teams given his physicality, ball skills and tackling. Special-teams ability adds to value.
