BIO: First-year starter who posted 43/1/3 as a senior.
POSITIVES: Athletic defensive back best in nickel situations. Moves well laterally, displays good range and has a burst of closing speed. Disciplined, quick to locate the ball and displays good hands for the interception.
NEGATIVES: Not physical and takes side angles to the ballcarrier, rather than meeting opponents head-on. Marginal break on the pass. Average playing speed.
ANALYSIS: A utility defensive back who makes the calls in the secondary, Bailey displays adequate skills in pass coverage. Must turn up the physical nature of his game and prove his worth on special teams to have any shot at the next level.
