JoJo Nicolas
Position: S
Class:  Sr
School: Miami (FL)
HT: 6'0"
WT: 205 lbs.
40 Time: 4.54
Conference: ACC
Biography: Full-time starter the past three years. Senior totals included 66 tackles/2 interceptions/1 as breakups after he had 36 tackles as a junior.

Positives: Developing safety with a complete game. Effectively reads or diagnoses the action, takes good angles to the play and is efficient. Remains disciplined with assignments, works well with teammates and consistently plays heads-up football. Displays a burst of speed getting outside the flanks, solid range in center field and next-level ball skills in coverage. Effective defending the run and wraps up when tackling. Plays tough yet smart football.

Negatives: Not a big, strong or sturdy tackler. Average production against the pass.

Analysis: Nicolas is an underrated safety prospect who displays good instincts on the field and is effective in all areas of the game. He possesses ordinary size/speed numbers yet has the ability to be used as a nickel safety in a variety of systems at the next level. Effective on special teams for the hurricanes, Nicolas should also be an asset on coverage units.

Projection: FA
