Notes:

Played wide receiver, safety and quarterback as a North Carolina prep, who also lettered in baseball, basketball and track. Suffered a torn ACL in his right knee as a sophomore. Redshirted in 2007. Saw action in 12 games in ’08, recording 17 tackles, four pass breakups and zero interceptions with one tackle for loss while seeing time in the secondary and on special teams. Missed the Eagle Bank Bowl game with a shoulder injury. Posted 25-3-1 with one tackle for loss in 10 games (six starts) in ’09. Took over the starting free safety position in Week 5 before suffering a left collar bone injury and missing the final two games. Picked off NC State’s Russell Wilson’s to end his NCAA-record streak of 379 passes with an interception. In ’10, he registered 33-4-0 with two tackles for loss in 11 games (seven starts at cornerback and one at free safety). Did not play against Stanford due to a pulled left hamstring. Made all 13 starts at free safety in ’11 and led the team in interceptions after posting 59-5-6 with two tackles for loss.

Summary:

Finesse free safety and special teamer with good size and speed who nabbed six interceptions as a senior. Has experience in deep zone and man coverage — shows range and closing ability, but tackles inconsistently.
