NFL.com Bio

2014: Second-team All-SEC. Started 12 games. 2013: Started all 13 games.2012: Started all 14 games. 2011: Played in 11 games with one start.

STRENGTHS: Natural corner who has played and can play all over field. Played in the box in dime package and used as deep safety on a few snaps. Good length pressing and crowding receivers to the sideline. At his best as bump-and-run corner playing inside leverage. Thin but physical in run support. Covered big receivers and tight ends from the slot. Blitzes like a heat-seeking missile.
