Notes:
Widely regarded as the top safety in the draft...After garnering Freshman All-American honors in 2005 and Third-Team honors in 2006, Phillips regressed a bit last season...Dealt with a nagging ankle injury, but still finished with 82 tackles, two interceptions, five pass breakups and three forced fumbles...Combines tremendous raw athleticism with an innate knowledge of the game, a hybrid of former Hurricane safeties Sean Taylor and Ed Reed, according to UM coaches...A vocal team leader, with solid range...Excels in both man andzone coverage schemes...Not shy about making a big hit on the ball carrier...Will need to sharpen up footwork to stay with faster receivers in the NFL...Prone to bite on play fakes...Still, has the tools to be a quality starting safety in the NFL.
