 Summary:

If you love football it is almost impossible not to love this kid.  He has good size; he played in the SEC, played on a team devoid of talent, makes numerous tackles, and is solid in coverage.  Many might say why a third round grade than?  Playing onKentuckyand not having a ton of interceptions will push him down the draft board.  Fear not though, I think some team will get a huge steal and when it is all said and done I believe he will be the best safety from this class.  Teams that will use him in the box will have the best success with him due to his ability to attack behind the line of scrimmage.  Teams like Patriots, Colts, Steelers, Ravens, Cowboys, Eagles, and Panthers.
