Name is pronounced “fuh-NELL-us.” The Florida prep also lettered in basketball and track and field. Appeared in 12 games on special teams as a true freshman in 2008, making 13 tackles, zero passes defended and zero interceptions with two forced fumbles. Returned four kickoffs for 86 yards (21.5-yard average). Did not play in the season opener against Akron after spraining his right ankle in fall camp. Registered 35-2-1 while playing in 13 games, including five starts at cornerback in ’09. Started all 13 contests at cornerback in ’10 and led the team in interceptions after posting 56-7-4 with one forced fumble. Had a 36-yard interception return for a TD against Purdue. Totaled 51-5-4 with three tackles for loss in ’11 while making all 14 starts at cornerback.Positives:
Good size. Plays with his eyes and diagnoses. Zone-aware to anticipate and react. Flexible hips. Shows burst to close and recover. Very good ball reactions and production — is active and shows timing to break up throws. Has a knack for stripping the ball. Effective special-teams contributor as a young player. Bench-pressed 225 pounds 23 times and ran 3.97 seconds in the short shuttle.Negatives:
Average top-end speed. Limited functional strength — underpowered jam and is too easily sealed outside. Unreliable setting the edge and is a shoddy, grab-and-drag tackler. Unrefined technique. Loses at the line — struggles to reroute receivers and loses a step off the snap. Upright, slightly choppy pedal. Loses leverage. Suspect character.Summary:
Lean, athletic, finesse college boundary corner with flexibility and ballhawking skills, though he needs to get stronger and be coached up technically. Could earn a backup job, function in zone and contribute on special teams.
