Round 6, Pick 198
Position: S

Conference: Big Ten
HT: 6-0
WT: 211

Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference and All-American honors the past two seasons. Junior totals included 79/2/2 after he had 85/6/6 as a sophomore.

Positives: "Tough, intelligent defensive back who constantly positions himself to make plays on the ball. Instinctive, effectively diagnoses the action, and chases hard to get involved in plays. Quick up the field defending running or screen plays, shows solid range out to the sidelines, and plays heads-up football. Breaks down well and works his hands."

Negatives: Does not display a great burst of speed. Has marginal ball skills. Lacks the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack or change direction without losing momentum.

Analysis: Sash is a heady football player who consistently puts himself in proper position and never gets beat. He's also a limited athlete with average speed for the next level. Sash would be best in a system that uses him as a conventional strong safety or places him in a zone defense. He should be an asset on special teams.

Projection: 5th
