BIO: Three-year starter named to the All-Conference team as a freshman. Posted 89 tackles, three INTs and 10 pass defenses last season after 86-0-9 the prior year.

POSITIVES: Smart, heady safety best defending the run. Quick to read the action, takes good angles to the ball carrier and always looking to get involved. Keeps the play in front of him, works well with the corner and flashes on the scene in run defense.

NEGATIVES: Marginal ball skills and abilities to defend the throw, does not play to his timed speed nor does he have good size for a strong safety.

ANALYSIS: Deficient cover skills hamper his possibilities at the next level.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
