BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter and All-Conference selection as a senior when he led Cincinnati in tackles with 95/4/4. Junior-year totals included 66 tackles.
POSITIVES: Productive, hard-working college defender with limited upside. Intelligent, displays good instincts, and quick diagnosing the action. Physical, works to get involved, and a willing volunteer in run defense. Displays a burst of straight-line speed, takes good angles to the action, and wraps up when tackling.
NEGATIVES: Undersized, has tackles broken, and struggles getting off blocks. Lacks top sideline-to-sideline range as well as speed to the flanks.
ANALYSIS: Nakamura is a solid college safety, yet he possesses limited physical skills. He is a special teams prospect who could also be used as a dime back at the next level.
