Bio: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after totaling 67/3/11. Posted 17 interceptions during his Iowa career.

Neg: Average footwork in reverse and very quick out of his backpedal. Lacks top-end speed and beaten deep by opponents. Under-sized and not strong at the point.
