Conference: Conference USA
40 Time: 4.62
Biography: Full-time starter the past three seasons besides seeing extensive action with the first team as a freshman. Awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors the past four years. Led the team in tackles as a senior posting 102/6/9 after 97 tackles as a junior. Sophomore totals included 104 tackles.
Positives: Well-sized run-defending safety best playing downhill. Aggressive, fast up the field, and willingly lays his shoulders into ball-carriers. Strong at the point, wraps up tackling, bringing ball-carriers down on initial contact. Good hands for the interception.
Negatives: Possesses marginal ball skills and indecisive when the pass is in the air. Lacks top sideline-to-sideline range and usually a step late arriving on the scene.
Analysis: Eskridge is a physical safety who looks the part in centerfield. Flashing skills in zone coverage, he is a potential backup with the special teams mentality.
