Notes:

Also played wide receiver as a Texas prep. Redshirted in 2007. Was a special-teams standout and reserve cornerback in ’08, making 23 tackles, zero passes defended and zero interceptions in 14 games. Had to attend a junior college in the spring of ’09 to get his grades up in order to be eligible for the fall. Continued his special-teams play in ’09 with 14-0-0 while playing in all 12 contests. Moved into the starting lineup in ’10, making 12 starts at cornerback, and recording 71-14-5 with 8 1⁄2 tackles for loss and one sack. Finished second in the nation in passes defended and was the co-leader of the Big 12 in interceptions. Was named the Fiesta Bowl’s defensive MVP after recording seven tackles and returning an interception 55 yards for a touchdown. Was suspended from the university for the ’11 spring and summer semesters for academic misconduct, involving plagiarism, before being reinstated in July. Started 11 games in the fall, recording 60-10-2 with four tackles for loss and two forced fumbles. Missed two midseason games after arthroscopic knee surgery.

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.
