BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter at strong safety who totaled 58/3/1 as a senior after 58 tackles and five pass breakups the prior year.
POSITIVES: Aye-Darko has been a consistent player at Duke, and he offers potential for a defense that primarily employs zone coverage
or as a conventional strong safety.
NEGATIVES: Lacks top sideline-to-sideline range, and does not cover a lot of area on the field. Average skills in coverage, and struggles
making plays with his back to the ball.
ANALYSIS: Tough, run-defending safety effective facing the action. Displays a sense of timing, shows skill in zone coverage, and possesses
good hands for the interception. Takes proper angles to the action, picks up assignments, and squares into tackles. Shows
a burst of straight-line speed, and is a willing run defender who works to make plays up the field.
