BIO: Two-year starter who totaled 51/3/4 as a senior after a career high 88/2/6 during his junior campaign.
POSITIVES: Instinctive, alert defensive back who consistently puts himself in the right position on the field. Immediately picks up cover assignments, keeps the action in front of him and helps out teammates. Effective facing the quarterback, takes good angles to the play and times pass break-ups well. Displays solid sideline-to-sideline range, has a burst of closing speed and flashes on the scene. Effective special teams player who does an outstanding job on coverage units.
NEGATIVES: Struggles in man-to-man situations and slow getting his head back around to locate the ball. Lacks strength at the point of attack and has tackles broken.
ANALYSIS: A hard-working prospect with a well-rounded game, Leach has been a productive collegiate player who rarely makes mistakes. His abilities in zone coverage make him a solid choice in the middle frames for a two-deep system.
