Height: 5-9 Weight: 184 Age: 24
Born: 12/12/1989 Lakeland , FL
Selected By: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Pick (Overall): 20 (151)
Black's an undersized safety prospect who should be able to contribute immediately in sub-packages and as a special teams cover guy even if he never becomes a starter. Has excellent instincts. Plays tough and is durable despite lack of size. Very capable in deep cover-2 or lining up over slots but doesn't have the size or length against physical receivers. Flies to the ball, is a sure tackler when coming up to support the run, and will make plays in the backfield when asked to blitz. Black overcame his lack of size in college and may get the chance to do so again as a mid-round pick.
