Hosley isn't butterfingered. That Stanford "PIck-Six" was a little behind him and he still made a play for the ball. It would have been his SECOND pick on Luck if he held on. His strengths are positioning and attacking the ball at the highest point. He is very coachable. His size and some top end speed are a concern. He's not very useful in Run Support because of his lack of weight and size, however at the line of scrimmage he will usually be able to slow them down long enough for help to arrive.
He played his Junior year injured. A lot of the big plays he allowed were a result of bad safety play or being injured on the play. (Against Miami and Clemson he got injured and left the game) If you watched the Michigan game, you'd completely understand what I'm talking about in regards to safety play.
He's 2nd-3rd Round talent. His return ability relies on shiftiness and he has the speed to break one, but he doesn't have the top end speed get there quick.
This^ Jayron Hosley? yes please
State fans should remember what he did to Russell Wilson. Guy is a pure baller and 2nd round for him is about right.
VT produces some good DBs for the NFL if anything.

Guys like gamble, peterson and nnamdi are all considered exceptionally big for the position and hard to come by with their level of talent.
