Here's a full scouting report:

Positives: Plays with attitude. Flies to the ball and never shies away from contact. Is a willing run defender who throws his small frame at ballcarriers and can deliver a big hit. Has nice body control and can contort himself midair to make a play on the ball. Shows good balance in his stance and takes a quick first step off the ball. Uses above-average closing speed to make up for mistakes and break on the football. Does not lose acceleration when changing direction and keeps his balance when coming in and out of cuts. Is at his best in off-man coverage when he can keep the play in front of him. Jumps well and flashes the awareness to deflect passes against bigger receivers. Has started since his freshman season and has plenty of experience. Won a team award for his community service in the Buffalo area.

Negatives: Undersized and can be overwhelmed by big-bodied pass-catchers. Will take false steps when playing press coverage and tends to lunge at receivers when asked to jam. Takes lots of chances and can give up the big play while looking for an interception or monster hit. Trusts his speed too much at times and takes poor angles to the ball. Will lower his head when tackling and can miss ball-carriers entirely when looking for the big hit. Gets feet tangled up when asked to play press man coverage and can pushed around by larger receivers at the line. Does not get off blocks well. Gets caught looking into the backfield and allows craftier receivers to get behind him. Suffered a concussion as a sophomore.

"Boy you got a head like bullet". So, he puts you in the mind of former Panther Ricky Manning, Jr., if he got beaten up.

Somebody better put this guy in check when he gets here. Just 'cause you got a head like a bullet don't make you a big shot.

I like the pick.....and the pointed head adds to our persona around the league as some odd, slightly dememted mofo's that are not to be taken lightly.

Hopefully that pointed head is a steel plate and everytime he goes into make a tackle he can take his helmet off (just act like the wind blew it off) and knock the wind out of other wr's like roddy white. Just wishful thinking though
