Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a junior. Senior totals included a team leading 93 tackles with one interception. Junior numbers included career totals of 98/5/7.
Positives: Nice-sized safety best in a straight line. Forceful up the field, strong defending the run and sells out on the blitz. Consistently flies around the ball sacrificing his body to make the tackle. Displays a burst of closing speed. Solid route recognition facing the action. Hard-hitting defender who causes turnovers. Wraps up tackling and is a solid open field tackler.
Negatives: Struggles in man coverage situations. Slow getting his head back around to locate the ball and does a bit of face guarding. Late getting to the sidelines in coverage.
Analysis: Stuckey is an adequately sized safety who plays a physical brand of football. He offers potential in a zone system where he can face the action and play between the numbers. Stuckey should be productive on special teams.
