BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who transferred from South Carolina. Totaled 26 tackles in seven games as a senior after 41/5/6 as a junior,
when he was an all-Conference selection.
POSITIVES: Strong, aggressive defensive back who flies around the action trying to make positive plays. Fast up the field, defeats blocks
and brings ball carrier down on initial contact. Displays coverage skills facing the action, and has a nice burst to the pass
out of his plant.
NEGATIVES: Very quick to leave his backpedal and slow in transition. Possesses average playing speed.
ANALYSIS: Pope is an aggressive college cornerback who projects to safety at the next level. He is best suited for a zone system where
he could face the action. Pope looks like he has a special teams mentality.
