Drew Astorino
Position: S
Class:  Sr
School: Penn State
HT: 5'10"
WT: 202 lbs.
40 Time: 4.55
Conference: Big Ten
Biography: Three-year starter who finished the season with 86 tackles/1 interceptions/6 pass breakups after he had 70/1/5 as a junior.

Positives: Hardworking, intelligent college defensive back with marginal upside for the next level. Smart, remains disciplined with assignments and works well with cornerbacks. Quick up the field and sells out to make plays. Displays a terrific burst out of his plant and shows the ability to get outside the numbers to make plays.

Negatives: Easily blocked from the action. Struggles handling tight ends in coverage. Average ball skills.

Analysis: Astorino is a smart defender who gets the most from his skills. He lacks the size and overall ability to be anything other than a backup at the next level yet comes with a special teams mentality.

Projection: FA
