BIO: Four-year starter who lined up with the first team for eight games as a true freshman. Second-team All-Conference selection last season producing 32 tackles, six INTs and breaking up seven passes. Junior numbers were 58-3-10 after 41-3-6 the prior season.

POSITIVES: Nice-sized cornerback with a good head for the game. Quick picking up assignments, positions himself to make plays and keeps the action in front of him. Runs downfield with opponents, smooth turning back to the pass and works to get involved in the play. Defends the run and works hard.

NEGATIVES: Lacks both closing or recovery speed, has difficulty staying with opponents out of their breaks and game lacks suddenness.

ANALYSIS: Cover skills and ability to play in zone gives him an opportunity as a dime back at the next level.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
