2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DAMARIUS TRAVIS: Minnesota, 6007 206 4.61. One-year starter from Pensacola, FL. Versatile safety with good size who can play deep or in the box. Strong with good strength to take on blocks, doing a good job warding off the blocker and getting to the ball. Instinctive against the run with good tracking ability moving downhill. Shows good chase ability and range in pursuit. A solid tackler in space. Can play on the edge and force with good leverage. Shows good zone awareness and is tough to throw on in the short flat. Not quite as good as a deep safety but shows good transitions and breaks quick on plays in front of him. Shows a smooth quick pedal in the deep third and half but at times gives up too much ground in the deep zones. Will take a bad angle and get out of position at times when chasing. Good pedal and fluid change of direction. Some wasted movement in turn and run at times. Does not affect his ability to match up to a tight end on a vertical route. Not as good maintaining leverage on crossing routes. Closes well on the throw. A smart instinctive safety with good overall tools. Marginal as a deep safety but he is versatile. Might have a future as a nickel/hybrid linebacker. Shrine Game notes: Showed good transitions during the week and breaks quickly on the ball in front of him. Can play halves deep and yet can come down and play on the edge with force and leverage. Demonstrates a smooth and quick backpedal in deep thirds or middle of the field. A smart and instinctive safety with size and good tools. 2016 stats: 83 T, 5 TFL, 6 PBU, 2 INT. BTR:left 4.76, right 4.70. OSR:DNP. Sixth/ seventh round. (A-31 3/4, H-9, VJ-32.5, SS-4.29).
