Strong Points

Good safety size. Very good athlete, smooth and fluid. Has good hips and can turn and run. Very aware in coverage with top instincts and ball awareness. Plays the ball very well and has good hands. Good tackler in the open field.

Weak Points

Not a big hitter and needs to improve his run-support skills. Will miss some tackles when he doesn't wrap and doesn't consistently take good angles to the ball in the run game. Needs to add some bulk and strength.

The Way We See It

True junior entering the draft. He has been a starter since midway through his freshman year. Tall and rangy guy with cover skills and ball skills. Has nine interceptions over the past two seasons. Can roam the field as a free safety and make plays on the ball. As good as he is in coverage, he needs to get a little bigger and stronger and become more of a force versus the run. Waits for plays to come to him instead of attacking and he is not a big hitter. His coverage and ball skills will get him on the field early but he needs to become more aggressive to stay there.
