Notes:

Played running back, wide receiver and cornerback in addition to lettering in basketball and track as a Georgia prep. Played in all 11 games as a reserve in 2008, recording 15 tackles, three pass breakups and zero interceptions. Tallied 36-3-2 with 2 1⁄2 tackles for loss in 11 games in ’09. Moved into the starting lineup at cornerback in ’10 and posted 31-7-1 with two tackles for loss and two forced fumbles in 11 games. Led the team in interceptions in ’11 after posting 58-5-4 with three tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and a blocked kick against The Citadel in 11 starts.

Positives:

Very good size — well-built and well-proportioned. Has speed to run with tight ends. Showed explosion at the Combine — posted a 371⁄2-inch vertical leap and broad jump of 10 feet 6 inches. Plays with his eyes in zones and drives on throws in front of him. Physical tackler. Has special-teams experience. Dedicated and hardworking. Tough and durable.

Negatives:

Shows some tightness in his hips. Has man-cover limitations. Loses separation at the top of route stems. Average plant-and-drive and stop-and-go quickness. Squats on routes and lacks burst to recover from missteps. Did not dominate marginal competition. 

Summary:

Big, baby-faced, confident, competitive FCS cornerback lacking the speed, quickness and change of direction to stay attached to NFL receivers in man coverage. Best chance to make a roster could be as a strong safety and will have to prove his worth on special teams. Versatility can intrigue. Practice-squad candidate.
