BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who led Houston in tackles last season with 103/2/8. Played in three games as a junior totaling 13 tackles before sustaining a season-ending knee injury. Sophomore-year totals included 114 tackles.
POSITIVES: Tough run-defending safety who plays with reckless abandon. Stays with assignments, quickly diagnoses the action, and plays heads-up football. Physical, active in run defense, and goes for the strip. Wraps up when tackling.
NEGATIVES: Lacks top sideline-to-sideline range, shows minimal burst, and struggles in coverage.
ANALYSIS: Schwartz did a solid job returning from his knee injury last season and his physical style of play would be a good fit in a zone system.
