BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded All-American and All-Conference honors since his freshman campaign. Senior-year totals included 95/2/8 after 82/4/2 as a junior. Posted a career-high 144 tackles as a freshman.
POSITIVES: Super-productive safety who.s at his best defending the run. Quickly diagnoses the action, explodes up the field, and works to get off blocks to make the play. Gives great effort and aggressively attacks ball-carriers. Quarterbacks the secondary and gets his teammates in proper position.
NEGATIVES: Possesses marginal ball skills and speed to the flanks. Struggles in coverage. Does not show a closing burst to the play and stiff moving in reverse.
ANALYSIS: LeZotte is a smart and instinctive competitor who.s at his best facing the action. A marginal athlete, his best chance is to make it as a zone-coverage safety, yet he must flourish on special teams.
