Bio: Impact defender the day he stepped on the field for Boise State. WAC Defensive Player of the Year last season after totaling 97 tackles with 5.5 tackles for loss, 4 sacks, 1 interception and 11 pass defenses. All-Conference selection as a junior posting 87/7/2/2/10 when he led the team in tackles. WAC Co-Defensive Player of the Year as a sophomore after registering a career high 118 tackles.
Pos: Tough, competitive run stuffing safety best up the field. Disciplined, quick to recognize the action and pick up his assignments. Explosive moving up the field, yet also displays the skill to change direction and chase the ball carrier to the sidelines. Flies around the ball but also squares and wraps up tackling.
Neg: Has difficulty in man coverage, not quick locating the ball in the air and better going forwards than in reverse.
Analysis: Shorter than what one wants in a pure strong safety but could be effective in two deep zone coverage.
