Notes:

 Also played linebacker, wide receiver and running back as a Michigan prep. Saw action in eight games as a true freshman in 2008, recording six tackles on special teams. Appeared in 11 games in ’09, making three starts at free safety early and the final four games at strong safety, and posted 67 tackles, two pass breakups and one interception. Started 12-of-13 contests at free safety in ’10 and registered 76-8-4. Posted 80-2-4 with two tackles for loss in 14 games (13 starts) at free safety in ’11. Only non-start came in the Outback Bowl for an undisclosed violation of team rules. Team captain.

Positives:

Active and energetic — likes to play and it shows. Can man up and shadow receivers. Fluid movement skills and transition. Very good speed and leaping ability. Broad-jumped 10 feet 5 inches at the Combine. Rangy and aware in zone. Breaks on throws and plays the ball. Drops downhill aggressively — good pursuit range and closing speed. Effective on special teams.

Negatives:

Built like a cornerback — lacks ideal height and bulk. Needs to get stronger. Can do a better job keeping his head on a swivel. Bites on play-action. Takes some inaccurate pursuit angles. Porous last line of defense — inconsistent one-on-one tackler (struggles to break down). Durability could be an issue.

Summary:

Short free safety who will be valued for his coverage skills, willingness to tackle and special-teams value. Should become a solid, versatile backup and could warrant some interest as a cornerback.
