BIO: Two-year starter who posted 73/2/6 as a junior after 69/1/1 during his sophomore campaign.
POSITIVES: Developing defensive back slowly turning into a complete player. Fast, explosive at the point and not afraid to mix it up. Supports the run and wraps up tackling. Displays a good sense of timing, recognizes patterns in zone coverage and possesses good hands for the pick. Solid footwork in all directions with the ability to turn his hips and transition.
NEGATIVES: Indecisive and not overly efficient. Stands to improve his man-to-man cover skills.
ANALYSIS: A consistent defender the past two seasons, Whitner has definite possibilities as a free safety. Displays all-around skill and should develop into a starter on the NFL level.
