BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who began his college career at cornerback. Senior-year totals included 57/3/3 after 66/1/5 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Large, imposing defender who can be a force against the run. Remains disciplined, quickly diagnoses the action, and shows a burst of speed. Defeats blocks and effective in zone coverage.
NEGATIVES: Does not show top lateral range or speed to the flanks. Indecisive in coverage and not efficient. Does not show much urgency to his game. Not a physical defender.
ANALYSIS: Possessing solid size/speed numbers, Yearwood is a good athlete, yet he has to consistently play to his measurables. Must significantly turn up the intensity of his overall game for any chance to stick at the next level.
