BIO: Totaled 21/4/8 as a senior, spending most of his time at cornerback. Struggled through an injury-plagued junior campaign and posted only 14/1/6 on the corner. All-American return specialist as a sophomore when he averaged 26.5-yards on 20 punt returns, bringing five back into the end zone for scores.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized athlete who never capitalized on a big sophomore season. Out muscles opponents defending the throw and easily brings ball carriers down on initial contact. Displays good range defending the throw and fluid turning his hips. Improved his reads as a senior and did not have as many mental breakdowns.
NEGATIVES: Lacks explosion, quickness and speed for cornerback. Prefers to side-shuffle rather than backpedal. Considered an underachiever, never took his game to the next level.
ANALYSIS: An imposing specimen, DeLoatch impacts the game with bone crushing hits or long punt returns yet seems content getting by with natural abilities. Must immediately turn up the intensity to have a shot in the NFL.
