Name: Willie Miles School: Tennessee Year: 5Sr
Ht: 5-11 Wt: 175 40: 4.52 Pos: CB
Bio: Started 10 games as a senior after sitting out the prior season with a wrist injury. Recorded 25 tackles, 2 interceptions and broke up 5 passes after 37-0-10 during his junior campaign of 2000, when he started 12 games. Top special teams player and blocked kicks in the past.
Pos: Inconsistent cover corner who flashes skill on occasion. Gets off the line with fluid footwork, smooth in his hips and loses nothing in transition. Physical, bumps opponents throughout the routes and displays a good feel for coverage. Closes on the pass with a burst of speed and shows good ball skills.
Neg: Not the first Volunteer to help out in run support. Has an occasional lapse in concentration and gets beat deep. Bites on pump fakes
Analysis: Must turn up the intensity and, more importantly, improve his consistency for any chance to play at the next level.
