Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Anthony Harris Minnesota Vikings

Long frame best suited for free safety. Can easily add 10+ pounds and play at 205. Intriguing position flexibility as a nickel or outside linebacker with growth. Possesses short space quickness. Physical and can set edge. Gets off blocks. Pursues well. Has good ball skills. Comfortable in backpedal. Drives well and plays in front of him. Excellent body control. Sometimes tackles with shoulder rather than wrapping up. Has to work on flexibility to turn and run. Must tighten footwork. Top end speed a question. Multi-year starter at Top 20 program. NFL free agent potential.
