BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter who totaled 80/2/1 as a senior when he also averaged 10.2 yards on 23 punt returns. Junior-year totals included 79 tackles. Compiled 71/5/9 as a sophomore. Accomplished boxer.

POSITIVES: Physically aggressive safety who.s at his best playing downhill. Tough against the run, strong at the point tackling, and brings opponents down on initial contact. Holds his ground or defeats blocks. Displays good recognition and better-than-average instincts. Flies around the action and an intimidating hitter who puts his shoulders into opponents and goes for the knockout blow.

NEGATIVES: Struggles in coverage, displaying marginal ball skills and lateral range. Does not play under control and takes himself from the action at times.

ANALYSIS: Zbikowski is a highly rated college player, yet he.s a one-dimensional defensive back for the next level. He must be used in a system that limits his area responsibilities in coverage and he needs to produce on special teams.
