BIOGRAPHY: Former receiver who moved to the secondary as a sophomore, with starting action at both cornerback and safety. Senior totals
included 89/5/4 when he led the team in interceptions and was second on the squad in tackles. Junior year numbers included
73/3/3 after 42/1/7 as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Holmes is an underrated defensive back who has been a solid player at Oklahoma the past three seasons. He lacks great physical
skills, yet he will be effective as a strong safety or in a zone system, and he should be a solid special teams player.
NEGATIVES: Lacks top sideline-to-sideline range. Struggles making plays with his back to the ball. Lacks a great burst to the action.
ANALYSIS: Nice-sized defensive back best facing the action. Effectively diagnoses plays, takes good angles to the ball handler, and
makes a lot of tackles. Relatively instinctive, effectively makes plays in space, and does a solid job on occasions when he
covers the slot receiver. Works hard to defend passes, and displays a good head for the ball.
