BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference and All-American honors last season. Led the team in tackles and interceptions with 125/8/3. Junior-year totals included 57/4/5.

POSITIVES: Competitive defensive back who gets the most from his abilities. Instinctive, plays heads-up football, and flies around the action. Aggressively lays his shoulders into ball-carriers, wraps up when tackling, and can be an intimidating force. Opportunistic and displays good hands for the pick.

NEGATIVES: Lacks top sideline-to-sideline range and speed to the flanks. Struggles with his back to the play. Not a big, sturdy safety.

ANALYSIS: Silva is an intense defender who.s constantly working to get involved in the action. Best suited for a zone system, he has a special teams mentality, which will be his ticket at the next level.

PROJECTION: Late Sixth Round
