BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter at all cornerback and safety. Awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 96/1/6 after 96/5/8 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Tough, aggressive defensive back that makes plays sideline to sideline. Fast up the field, very active in run support and wraps up tackling. Fluid turning his hips, works well with cornerbacks and shows speed moving to the flanks. Does an adequate job picking up centerfield assignments.
NEGATIVES: Hesitant in coverage, does not show a decisive move to the throw and gets beat deep. Lacks top safety size.
ANALYSIS: Hefney has been a terrific college player and a productive defender for Tennessee. He possesses the skill to make it as a nickel/dime back at the next level for a zone system.
