Selected by St. Louis Rams in round 2, pick 32 (64 overall)
Height Weight 40 Grade
5'9½ 182 4.44 3.41
Junior-college transfer and two-year starter at cornerback. Totaled 61/2/13 as a senior after 37/2/11 the prior year. Has also excelled on special teams since he was a redshirt sophomore.

Athletic corner with solid cover skills. Fluid transitioning off the line of scrimmage, displays a smooth and quick backpedal and the ability to stay with opposing receivers out of their breaks. Reads the action, disciplined and stays with his assignments. Runs downfield with opponents, gets up vertically and possesses excellent hands for the interception. Effective on punt coverage teams. Has difficulty in press coverage, lacks a burst of speed and struggles going up against nifty, agile opponents. Took a big step in the right direction as a senior and has a real opportunity to stick at the next level. More than likely a nickel back and special teams player to start off with but could grow from there. Mid Seventh Round.
