Scouting Report/Player Notes

This is a very talented former JUCO transfer to Alabama who started all 13 games last season and finished with 40 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, two interceptions, one fumble returned for a touchdown, as well as seven passes broken up. He was an All-American at the JUCO level who can also return punts and is really good with the ball in his hands. The only starting senior in the Alabama secondary going into 2013 has a chance to emerge as one of the best CB prospects in the SEC. Lean frame at 5’11” 186 pounds, and good length allows him to break up a lot of passes even if he gets slightly beat on a play. I’m intrigued to see how he measures out at the Combine.
