BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who totaled 22/1/3 as a senior after 57/0/9 the previous year.

POSITIVES: Undersized zone defensive back with limited upside. Quick transitioning to run with opponents, displays a good head for the ball, and works well with safeties. Picks up assignments in zone and works hard to make plays. Willing volunteer in run defense.

NEGATIVES: Lacks top-end speed and consistently playing catch-up. Small and loses out in battles.

ANALYSIS: Van offers enough skill and could catch on with a team that keeps nine defensive backs on the roster.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
