Notes:

Also played quarterback in addition to basketball as a New Jersey prep. Redshirted in 2007. Saw action in 11 games in ’08, making one start at strong safety, and logged 26 tackles, two pass breakups and one interception. Was the starter in all 11 games at strong safety and produced 53-0-5 with 21⁄2 tackles for loss, one sack and one forced fumble in ’09. In ’10, registered 58-6-2 with 5 1⁄2 tackles for loss, one sack and two forced fumbles in 11 starts at strong safety. Was arrested in December 2010 for disorderly conduct, arrest and failure to submit to arrest after an altercation at a nightclub. Appeared in all 13 games in ’11 and logged 92-5-1 with 11 1⁄2 tackles for loss and 3 1⁄2 sacks.

Positives:

Good size. Light on his feet. Has speed to run with tight ends. Drops downhill quickly. Flashes hitting ability. Aggressive playing temperament. Has a 36 1⁄2-inch vertical leap and a 3-cone time of 6.69 seconds (best among strong safeties at the Combine). Has special-teams experience, including as a “gunner.” Is motivated and works hard in the weight room. Emotional, vocal, on-field leader. Tough and durable.

Negatives:

Shows some tightness in his hips. Does not always arrive under control and is not a form tackler — too often throws a shoulder or dives at ballcarriers. Is not anticipatory or explosive off the hash (average range). 

Summary:

Intense, aggressive box safety who throws his weight around. Has a special-teams mentality and could compete for a job as a No. 4.
