Notes:

Name is pronounced “Kyle Quarlz.” Has a child. Played linebacker and was also a sprinter on the track team as a Georgia prep. Redshirted in 2007. Saw action in all 13 games in ’08, mostly on special teams and as a backup safety, and recorded five tackles. Started all 12 games at strong safety in ’09, posting 62 tackles, one pass breakup and one interception. Suffered a concussion against Florida State. Registered 71-0-1 with 1 1⁄2 tackles for loss and one forced fumble in 12 games in ’10, including four starts at free safety and three at strong safety. Led the team in tackles in ’11 with 101-3-0 with one tackle for loss in 13 starts at strong safety.

Positives:

Very good size and has a frame with room for added bulk. Works hard in the weight room. Runs the alley. Aggressive tackler. Makes plays in the air and has soft hands to intercept. Has special-teams experience. Solid character.

Negatives:

Inconsistent performer. Average eyes, instincts and diagnostic skills. At times, does not fit properly in run support and takes some questionable angles in pursuit. Struggles to break down in space and misses one-on-one tackles. Limited ball production and playmaking impact.

Summary:

Big, lean, high-cut safety with appealing size, speed and ball skills who peaked early in the season vs. lesser competition. Offers versatility to back up both safety spots and should stick as a reserve/special-teams player.
