BIO: Two-year starter who posted 57/6/9 as a senior after 82/3/5 during his junior campaign.
POSITIVES: Athletic safety with solid size/speed numbers. Effectively reads the action, locates the ball in center field and gets vertical to knock away the pass. Quick moving up the field in run defense, squares into tackles and wraps up. Physical and strong at the same time.
NEGATIVES: Not a quick or sudden defender and disappears for stretches. Lacks overall ball skills, and struggles in coverage situations. Best playing downhill.
ANALYSIS: A prospect who looks the part, Rhodes only occasionally plays to his numbers. Should be much more productive and must start to translate his athlete abilities onto the football field in a consistent manner.
