Bio: Two-year starter who posted 73/2/6 as a junior after 69/1/1 during his sophomore campaign.
Pos: Developing defensive back slowly turning into a complete player. Fast, explosive at the point and not afraid to mix it up. Supports the run and wraps up tackling. Displays a good sense of timing, recognizes patterns in zone coverage and possesses good hands for the pick. Solid footwork in all directions.
Neg: Indecisive and not overly efficient. Stands to improve his man-to-man cover skils.
Analysis: A consistent defender the past two seasons, Whitner has definite possibilities as a starting free safety in a two-deep zone or conventional system.
