Notes:

Also ran track as a Georgia prep. Saw action in 11 games as a true freshman in ‘08, making a start against Arkansas, and recorded 29 tackles, four pass breakups and two interceptions with one forced fumble. Suffered a sprained ankle against West Virginia, missing the second half and the following week vs. Mississippi. Was the starter in all 13 games in ’09, posting 84-9-2 with half a tackle for loss and one forced fumble. Registered 64-9-0 with half a tackle for loss while playing in all 14 games (13 starts) for the national champions in ’10. Was moved to free safety in ’11 when he started all 13 games and produced 102-6-3 with one-half tackle for loss. 

Summary:

Long, narrow-framed, underdeveloped, underachieving defensive back whose SEC-caliber athletic ability resurfaced at pro day — 38-inch vertical leap, broad jump of 11 feet 5 inches — but off-putting tape, marginal instincts and questionable character tempers his appeal. Bench-pressed 225 pounds a measly four times.
