School: Minnesota
Conference: Big Ten
Ht., Wt.: 6'0, 196
40 Time: 4.5
Grade: 3.4

Selected by Cleveland Browns
Round 5, pick 17 (152 overall)
BIO: Three-year starter who recorded 32 tackles, two INTs and broke up six passes as a senior, after 44-2-18 the prior year. Suffered with a deep thigh bruise which hampered him most of his senior season.

POSITIVES: Athletic defensive back with fine size-speed numbers. Smooth in his hips, displays a burst of both closing and recovery speed, showing a nice move on the pass. Good ball skills yet also a physical defender who supports the run.

NEGATIVES: Gives up the inside rather easily, loses positioning and indecisive. A half step late arriving on the scene and has never been overly productive.

ANALYSIS: Needs work on both his cover skills and instincts, but his speed alone makes him worth a look.

PROJECTION: Late Sixth Round
