First Team All-SEC and AP All-America First Team selection in 2012, finishing with 76 tackles, 11 TFL, a forced fumble and four interceptions (third in SEC)...Started all 26 games in 2011 and 2012...One of the top performing safeties at the NFL Combine in the 40-yard dash (4.54)...Plays well in the box, both against the run game and in getting after the quarterback...Hard hitter without compromising speed, quickness or coverage ability...Natural football instincts, always around the ball...Left exposed at times when goingfor the highlight-reel hit...A bit smaller than most of his contemporaries at the position...Expected to be one of the first safeties drafted.
