Notes:
Participant in 2012 East-West Shrine Game...Set career highs with 70 tackles and eight tackles for loss in 2011...Tied for the lead for the Fighting Irish with two interceptions...Ranked third for Notre Dame in tackles and second with six passes defended...Eight career interceptions...Four year starter for Notre Dame...2012 NFL Combine participant...Ran a 4.70 40-yard dash at the combine....34.0 inch vertical jump...116.0 broad jump...Strong footwork...Can fit into both man and zone coverage schemes...Has also played in the nickel slot...Good route recognition...Physical defender...Size and length makes him an asset in run defense...Slow on the back pedal...Lacks elite speed.
