Biography: Four-year starter who lined up at linebacker the past two seasons and posted 71/3/6 after junior totals of 11/1/4, when he was an All-Conference selection.
Positives: Aggressive defensive back best defending the run. Chases the action hard and works to make plays. Displays a burst to the ball, effectively recognizes the action and sells out on the blitz. Remains disciplined with assignments.
Negatives: Marginal ball skills. Undersized at linebacker and slow for the secondary.
Analysis: Sexton was a productive college player and projects as a run-defending zone safety for the next level and should lend a hand on special teams.
