Team captain. Combines a nose for the ball and a hot motor to fill up stat sheet. Slippery on his way to the ball with ability to weave through traffic and slip blocks. Plays with plus balance and is able to withstand contact from blocker and stay in the play. High­-end, charged up tackler with some explosion behind his pads a high­-end tackle production. Former cornerback with a background in man coverage. Has twitch and acceleration to match slot receivers out of their breaks. Plays with outstanding awareness of man and ball in zone coverage. Snared seven interceptions over last two years. Special teams gunner and overall ace with multiple coverage tackles. Gets out of his stance in a flash and has unique talent for blocking kicks including four punts in nine games in 2014.


Top-end speed to recover and drive from the hash towards the deep sideline is just average. Pad level can get too high robbing him of "stop now" tackle strength against running backs. Gets himself in trouble with some of his angles to the ball. Will take direct angles in his chase leaving little margin for error. Former cornerback still learning proper leverage as a run supporter at safety. Must learn to balance natural aggressiveness with necessary caution. Tapered frame may not be able to add much more weight.
