BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who suffered a season-ending knee injury during the second game of .06. Collected a team-high 109 tackles as junior when he received All-Conference recognition.
POSITIVES: Athletic defender who has shown the ability to make plays sideline-to-sideline. Physical, quickly changes direction and covers a great amount of area. Fast laterally, possesses a burst of speed and flashes on the scene.
NEGATIVES: Does not always play under control and is inefficient.
ANALYSIS: A very productive defender who could be used at several linebacker spots, Waters will now be red-flagged because of the knee injury suffered in September. Has the size and speed as well as intelligence to start in the NFL.
