Notes:
First player in Fresno State history to be named a unanimous All-American (2012)...Finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, awarded to the nation's top defensive back...Recorded 82 tackles, 12 TFL, four sacks, eight interceptions (three for TDs) and four forced fumbles as a senior...Did not play in 2011 due to leg injury...Great closing speed and agility...Terrific instincts, always around the ball...Strong tackler...Solid straight-line speed but notelite...Gambles too often on play-action and double moves...Minimal experience against top-level competition...Injury history a concern.
