BIO: Second team all-conference selection as a senior after totaling 74 tackles. Junior totals included 67/3/3 after 66/9/13 as a sophomore when he broke into the starting lineup.
POSITIVES: Big, physical defensive back who plays with excellent intelligence. Immediately diagnoses the action, reacts quickly and displays sideline-to-sideline range. Displays a sense of timing and aggressively goes after the ball to make a play. Very competitive and hard-hitting.
NEGATIVES: Not strong at the point and only average man-to-man cover techniques. Did not stand out covering better receivers at the Blue/Gray game.
ANALYSIS: A fiery defender who plays with an all-out motor, Nauman has a place at the next level in a zone system and as a special teams player. Coaches will admire the hard-hitting style with which he plays.
