Plays the ball well in the air. Among the leaders annually in pass breakups. Good body position to knock down the ball. He allowed only 13 completions on 40 targets in 2013. Plays with confidence. Has the size that NFL teams want outside to match-up with big receivers. Injury history cut short his 2011 and 2009 seasons. Was suspended for the 1st game versus Texas A&M. East-West Shrine notes: a physical corner who was hindered by the no press rule and played off coverage. In practice he competed with every receiver and challenged every throw. Can turn and run deep. Closes quickly on short routes. 2013 stats: 36 T, 4 INT. BTR:left 4.50, right 4.65. OSR:1/ 32. Third/fourth round. (A-31 7/8, H-9 5/8, VJ-36.5, SS-4.04).
