Ernest Shazor School: Michigan
Ht: 6-3.5 Wt: 228 40: 4.60 Year: 4Jr
Bio: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference
honors since his sophomore season, and
named an All-American last year. Led the team
in tackles as a junior posting 84/2/1 after 57/2/5
as a junior.
Positives: Explosive, physical defender
with an intimidating presence. Fires up the field
in run defense, defeats blocks on his way to
the action and immediately alters his angle of
attack. Consistently flying around the ball and
always willing to throw a pad into the action.
Pursues well in the box, wraps up tackling
then brings ball carriers down at the point of
Negatives: Slow reacting in pass coverage
and indecisive when the ball's in the air. Choppy
footwork and prefers to side shuffle in reverse.
Marginal man-to-man cover skills, even when
covering tight ends.
Analysis: A hard-hitting
and dominant run-defending safety who craves
physical contact, Shazor is best up the field in
a straight line. Will only thrive in certain systems
and exclusively a strong safety with some potential
in two-deep system.
