Based on his highlight video, he has a really good sense of the field, he picks up what the offense is doing noticeably quicker than he fellow defenders and reacts immediately. He has a willingness to come in and "lay the hat" to assert his dominance. I would prefer him to be a little more aggressive at the line against receivers, but he recovers well when the ball is in the air. He's coming in to be a safety so bump at run at the line should be at a minimum. And LSU could definitely sharpen that aspect of his game. A little more agression at the line would put him in position for INTs as opposed to balls batted down. As I expected, his in-game speed is alot faster than his straight line speed and he continuously pulls away from defenders on INTs and PRs. Good looking football player and DBU would definitely help him fine-tune and polish his game. Definitely would be a great pick-up NSD.

You can always tell the people that don’t know a damn thing about football. Keanu Neal ran a 4.61, Jarvis Landry ran a 4.65. Up until the last event Elias Ricks best time was a 4.7

Solo cam you can always tell when people are pulling "facts" from their A hole. For one running 4.67 and a buck 80 is slow as hell for any postion, Keanu Neal is 226lb by the way. Secondly, Ricks 40time is 4.56, and lastly Jarvis Landreynis a 220lb reciever who uses his body to block out defenders not run away from them. 4.67 at his size and position is to slow to even cover a tight end non less a wide receiver.
