Notes:

Given name is Anthony. The Florida prep also lettered in basketball and track. Redshirted in 2007. Saw action in five games as a reserve cornerback and special teams contributor in ’08. Missed three games with a torn labrum in his left shoulder. Made his mark on special teams in ’09 with eight tackles, two pass breakups and zero interceptions in nine games. Missed the first four games of the season after fracturing his jaw over the summer. In ’10, saw action in all 13 contests and recorded 11-0-0 while serving on the kick coverage units and as a reserve cornerback.

Summary:

Raw, inexperienced cornerback who was not a starter, but has NFL-caliber size, speed and athletic ability to contribute on special teams, where he has experience as a “gunner,” jammer and return man. Is long-levered and wiry — needs to get stronger — and will have to prove he has the flexibility and toughness to carve a niche.
