Strong Points

Excellent ball skills (15 interceptions the past two seasons; school record 17 career picks). Speed, very good overall athleticism. Good in run support and a good tackler. Shows he can play man or zone. Strong Senior Bowl week. Two-time Mountain West Conference Defensive Player of the Year.

Weak Points

Marginal size and does not have much growth potential. Has short arms (297/8). In some games, was playing soft in coverage, giving a lot in cushion and giving up the underneath throws.

The Way We See It

A fifth-year senior and a three-year starter. Kazee is an athlete with speed and ball skills. He is not the most physical guy and he lacks the frame to get much bigger. Showed in the Senior Bowl he can cover aggressively. With his frame and short arms, I see him as a slot corner only. He doesn't have the size that NFL clubs would want playing outside. He should test well at the Combine and could go higher than my grade.
