Biography: Two-year starter who posted 38/1/11 as a senior after junior totals of 57 tackles and six pass breakups.
Positives: "Physically gifted college cornerback who flashes skill. Quickly transitions off the line, mixes it up with receivers throughout the route, and works hard to defend throws. Shows the ability to run downfield with opponents, has a closing burst to the action, and consistently defends a large number of passes. Helps out as a return specialist."
Negatives: Slow getting his head back around to locate the pass. Does not do a good job positioning himself against opponents. Usually a half step behind the action.
Analysis: Stephens is an athletic defensive back who has shown enough skills to warrant his inclusion on a practice squad next season.
