BIO: Penn State's leading tackler as a senior registering 144 with four INTs and five pass defenses. Junior totals were 97 tackles with two tackles for loss.

POSITIVES: Hard hitting safety best defending the run. Explodes up the field, reads the action and snuffs out the ball carrier. Takes good angles to the play, wraps up and squares into tackles. Likes physical contact and flies around the ball.

NEGATIVES: Hesitant or late reacting to the pass, loses coverage assignments and commits to a move up the field then gets caught put of position. Lacks sideline-to-sideline range and best in a straight line.

ANALYSIS: Best position is strong safety but a shade undersized. Most do damage on special teams.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
