However, isn't real fluid when asked to break down in space, will overrun plays, lacks ideal balance and can be easily slipped in the open field. Isn't real rangy in the deep half either vs. the pass game and lacks the athleticism and initial burst needed out of his breaks to hold up in an NFL secondary. Possesses above-average instincts and a good feel for the game, but again plays slow because of his inability to quickly redirect.
Impression: Lacks the size or overall athleticism/fluidity to hold up as a safety at the next level."
Strengths: Versatile, accountable safety who's equally comfortable in the deep patrol or defending the run in the box. Good instincts, is not caught out of position and is consistently around the ball. Big hitter and a sound tackler. Active and aware with nice range; makes plays all over the field. Plays the ball well and has hands for the pick.
Weaknesses: More of a free safety-type who lacks the size and rugged physique to consistently play in the box. Not overly fast, and is a bit stiff in the hips to hold up in man coverage. Service commitment of at least two years before he can hope to play again.
Projection: Would likely be a late-round pick if he wasn't committed to the Navy; as is he should find himself in a camp as a free agent. Good player who may have a shot two years down the road."
