|National Football League Draft Profile|
|Duke Ihenacho |
|School||San Jose State |
|High School||Serra (Carson, California)|
|Two-time First Team All-WAC Selection...Has the size needed to play safety at the next level...Very athletic player with terrific ball skills...Works well in coverage and can also help out against the run...Does not have great speed and can struggle against the quicker receivers...Is a bit raw and relies more on instinct and less on football IQ...Tends to take too many chances and that leads to missed tackles...Durability is also a concern thanks to a few alarming injuries, including losing most of the 2010 season with a broken foot in late September.|
