Notes:

Also lettered in track and played quarterback and running back as a Mississippi prep. Began his college career at Southern Mississippi, where he redshirted in 2007 and was a member of the Conference USA Dean’s list. Saw action in 11 games in ’08, making five tackles, zero pass breakups and zero interceptions with one forced fumble. Wore No. 2 for Southern Miss. Transferred to Hampton for the ’09 campaign and posted 32-7-1 with two tackles for loss and a forced fumble in 11 games (seven starts). Appeared in all 11 games, making 10 starts, in ’10 and totaled 41-14-2. In ’11, recorded 51-15-4 with 4 1⁄2 tackles for loss and one forced fumble in 10 games.

Positives:

Very good size and movement skills.  Light-footed pedal. Good balance and body control. Can shadow in man coverage. Zone-aware. Smart and instinctive. Is rangy and makes plays on the ball. Has worked as a “gunner” and jammer. Tough and durable. Has leadership traits. Mature, motivated and hardworking. 

Negatives:

Needs to improve his functional strength — has an underpowered jam and stays wired on blocks. Average physicality. Not an explosive athlete — managed a 33-inch vertical leap and a broad jump of 9 feet 8 inches at the Combine. Allows too much cushion. Takes some questionable angles in pursuit. Selective hitter. Does not stand out vs. marginal competition.

Summary:

Big, athletic, Southern Miss transfer with the makeup of a reserve/special-teams player. Physicality and consistency leave something to be desired and could be overdrafted given the demand for big corners.
