Strengths

  • Excellent coverage skills
  • Tackling machine with 107 tackles (72 solo) in 2010
  • Good awareness and anticipation - always around the football

  • Named MVP of 2011 Outback Bowl (6 tackles, 2 INT, 1 TD)
  • Hard worker and three year starter -  played in 48 games and made 39 starts
  • Solid in man coverage - Could play some nickel; played corner his freshman year

Weaknesses

  • Extremely small for a safety - may be too short for the next level and does not have frame to add much more weight
  • Lack of size is especially apparent when covering tight ends
  • Average speed, but has a good burst
  • Needs to get stronger to take on NFL running backs and wide receivers
