A Second Team All-Big 12 Conference selection in 2012 and a First Team honoree in 2011...Led the Longhorns in tackles as a senior with 107, adding four TFL, two interception and two forced fumbles...Recorded 82 tackles, eight TFL and eight pass breakups in 2011...Demonstrated well-rounded athleticism at the NFL Combine with a 4.63 40-yard dash, 15 bench press reps, 38-inch vertical leap and 40.6 20-yard shuttle...Effortless change-of-direction ability...Solid tackler...Strong downhill runner...Aggressive in run support...Impressive in coverage, but likely a step slower than the better NFL receivers...Guilty of over-pursuing at times...Expected to be one of the top safeties off the board.
