Analysis

Strengths

Big safety. Will hit and can intimidate. Sifts through combo routes successfully. Understands his job and carries it out with relative consistency. Transitions quickly from high to low in run support. Isn't easily displaced from coverage responsibility by quarterback's eyes.

Weaknesses

Bulky, tight hips with poor play speed. Doesn't show a top gear and gives up angles when chasing wide in pursuit. Can get out of control and miss tackles when coming downhill. Not instinctive enough to make up for below-average burst. Leaves throwing windows to seam open too long. Struggles against play-action.

Draft Projection

Round 6 or 7

Bottom Line

He's a big, strong, stiff box safety with below-average speed. Will likely struggle to cover talented pass-catching tight ends and doesn't have the range to play a deep safety spot, so his NFL prospects could be very limited.
