Grading System
JOE GONZALES
Position: S
Class:
School: Indiana
Conference: -
Ht., Wt.: 6'0, 210
40 Time: 4.55
Grade: 2.84

BIO: Started at free safety as a senior posting 44 tackles and four tackles for a loss after 65 tackles in 2001. Sidelined by a hernia five games into the 02 campaign.

POSITIVES: Tenacious defender who plays with reckless abandon. Quickly diagnoses the action, fast to the flanks and flies around the football. Tough in run support, likes to tee-off on ball carriers and always works to get involved in the action.

NEGATIVES: Poor skills in man coverage and plays downhill. Does not always take the best angles to the action and wastes a lot of movement.

ANALYSIS: A special teams type that could make a career on kick or punt coverage units, Gonzales' biggest hurdle going into a camp next summer will be passing physical exams.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
