BIO: Two-year starter who also saw action with the first team during four games in 2000. Posted 74 tackles, one interception and three pass defenses as a senior after 67-0-2 as a Junior when he was named Big 10 honorable mention.

POSITIVES: Forceful defender with good ball skills. Quick reading the action, aggressive and very physical. Sees the field, displays a good head in pass coverage and always working to get involved in the action. Takes good angles to the play, strong at the point and easily brings opponents down on initial contact.

NEGATIVES: Not a sudden or explosive player, does not flash on the scene and a half step slow in pass coverage.

ANALYSIS: Showed potential early on and offers good athletic numbers but must take his game to another level.

PROJECTION: Early Sixth Round
