BIO: Three-year starter who posted career numbers of 95 tackles as a senior. Junior totals included 34 tackles when he struggled with ankle problems.
POSITIVES: Solid run-defending safety best in the box. Displays a good head for the ball, does not bite on play-action passes and forceful up the field. Breaks down well, slides off blocks and wraps up tackling.
NEGATIVES: Stiff and does not immediately alter his angle of attack. Lacks top sideline-to-sideline range.
ANALYSIS: While Tufts test well athletically and had a good Combine, his production on the field has been marginal at best. Does not grade out well in the areas of competitiveness or toughness and though he made strides as a senior, his overall play is indicative of that.
