However, looks stiff in the hips when asked to turn and run and lacks ideal top-end speed down the field. Doesn't exhibit a second gear, struggles to get up to speed quickly and isn't a guy who can make up for a false step, as he's consistently slow to recover. Also, looks stiff in off-coverage, fails to quickly flip his hips, redirect and close on the football. Is a solid tackler vs. the run game, but isn't the most instinctive of guys when asked to quickly locate the football. Doesn't get many good jumps on the ball at the second level.
Does have some character concerns, as he was ruled academically ineligible for the 2010 season and is no longer with the team.
Impression: Displays some natural press coverage ability, but is tight in the hips and lacks great top-end speed. Is really limited in what he can offer an NFL team because of his lacking recovery ability."
