BIO: Two-year starter who posted 70/7/3 as a senior after 74 tackles the prior season.
POSITIVES: Self-motivated, hard-working defender with marginal size/speed numbers. Plays with good pad level, slices up the field in run defense and quickly fills gaps. Has a straight-line burst of speed. Gets adequate depth on drops in zone coverage.
NEGATIVES: Not an efficient defender and takes a lot of missteps. Limited skills in pursuit. Slow shedding blocks.
ANALYSIS: A competitive prospect who gives top effort, Herrin has safety size yet marginal linebacker speed. Potentially a backup on the inside of a 34 defense who must make a big contribution on special teams.
