BIO: Three-year starter who totaled 69 tackles, two INTs, and three pass defenses as a senior, after 54 tackles and seven pass break-ups the prior year.

POSITIVES: Big, hard-hitting safety who’s best making plays up the field. Quick to read running plays, explosive in a straight line, and a hard working defender who gets involved in the action. Sized well and has an intimidating style of play.

NEGATIVES: Shows poor tackling technique and would rather knock down the ball carriers rather than wrap up, which leads to yardage gained off initial contact. Does not always play under control or take the best angles to the action; struggles mildly if placed in man-to-man coverage.

ANALYSIS: Unlikely to be selected but his temperament and tenacity lends one to believe he'll be productive on special teams.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
