Safety from Alabama

 

Is there any chance of us taking him with a late-round pick? Why I'm selfishly interested: He played at Marvin Ridge HS in Union County until his junior year and I know a LOT of people that know him. I saw him make 22 *straight* tackles in a high school game back in the day. He was a beast in high school and was great at Alabama too. His father is Sal Sunseri, former Panthers defensive line coach under John Fox and current defensive coordinator at Florida State.

 

But there are some big cons too: He tore his ACL in October and he's leaving school with a year left of eligibility against Nick Saban's advice/wishes. A little undersized, not great in man-to-man coverage. 

 

Strengths: Was very fast (hopefully will stay fast post-ACL, TD should prove you can even get faster though), incredible instincts, a ball-hawk, tremendous leadership and great defensive fundamentals.

 

There are a ton of people rooting for him in the Charlotte area.

I have read that he made a big mistake coming out and that he might even go undrafted.  Course that is just some guys opinion.

 

Probably has to do with his knee

His sister can.

I remember her yelling at people in HS when they'd criticize the Panthers.

When he was coaching here, Darin Gantt used to say he had to look up stuff that Sunseri saId to verify whether or not it was printable.
