Strengths

Positives: Prototypical size and athleticism. ... Excellent plant-and-drive, often reading the quarterback for the chance to pounce. ... Very good ball skills, able to deflect passes at the last moment. ... Uses his size and above average leaping ability to get to balls at the highest point. ... Very willing to support the run. ... Attempts to wrap up in the open field, even if not always successful. ... Appears to be a maturing young man with a bright future. Negatives: Does not have great catch-up speed, which was evident on multiple touchdowns allowed over his career. ... May struggle a bit against quicker slot receivers until his technique is refined. ... Will gamble too much at times to make the pick. ... Susceptible to the double-move. ... Could be more physical at his size, and is probably better suited to a zone scheme. ... Suspended two games in 2007 for violating team rules.
