BIO: Four-year starter and team leader in tackles every season since his sophomore campaign. Posted 97/2/6 as a senior after recording a career-high 141 tackles the previous year.
POSITIVES: Aggressive, physical safety best defending the run. Quick diagnosing the action, takes good angles to the play and efficient. Strong at the point of attack, wraps up tackling and is consistently around the ball. Quick moving up the field and works hard to make positive plays.
NEGATIVES: Not a sudden or flashy defender. Has difficulty in coverage defending the pass. Lacks a burst of speed and cannot immediately alter his angle of attack.
ANALYSIS: A hard-working and durable defender who started 51 games on the college level, Pusateri has been a productive run defender the past four years. Lacking the top size/speed numbers for a weak-side linebacker or secondary prospect, he may have a home as a backup at safety in a two-deep system.
