BIOGRAPHY: Moved into the starting lineup as a freshman and totaled 31/2/7 last season. Also averaged 10.9 yards on 14 punt returns with one score and 27.7 yards on 14 kick returns with another touchdown. Former All-Conference sprinter on the school.s track team.

POSITIVES: Game-impacting return specialist with home run speed. Flips his hips transitioning off the line, can run with opponents anywhere on the field, and displays both closing and recovery speed. Quickly breaks to the throw and fast enough to make up for mistakes. Has opposing quarterbacks looking away from him.

NEGATIVES: Possesses a thin build. Not physical or strong at the point. Stiff pedaling in reverse. Marginal instincts.

ANALYSIS: Possessing rare speed, Witherspoon is a developmental defensive back whose value at the next level is his return prowess.
