MAURICE SIKES
Position: S
Class: Sr
School: Miami (FL)
Conference: Big East
Ht., Wt.: 5'11, 195
40 Time: 4.61
Grade: 3.16

BIO: Posted 51/2/3 as a senior after 68/3/9 as a junior, when he broke into the starting lineup.

POSITIVES: Competitive, hard-working safety best in the box. Displays a head for the ball in run defense, quick moving up the field and a hard-hitting force who throws his body around the action. Efficient, alert and does not make mental mistakes.

NEGATIVES: Indecisive in pass coverage, lacks sideline-to-sideline range and better moving up the field. Lacks deep speed or the ability to play over a slot receiver.

ANALYSIS: Known as a defender that does the little things, Sikes is a high-motor player that does not stop until the whistle blows. That said, he is an average athlete that plays best downhill and will only fit a limited number of defensive schemes.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
