Notes:
First-team All-Big Ten as a junior in 2009...Second-Team All-Big Ten as a sophomore in 2008...Juco All-American in 2007...Started all 26 games at Iowa over the last two years...Notched four interceptions, six pass breakups and 68 tackles during his sophomore year...Had two INTs (both against Wisconsin), broke up eight passes and recorded 42 tackles in 2009...Ran a 4.5 40 at Iowa's Pro Day...High football IQ...Plays aggressive and physical...Solid in run support...Ideally suited for bump-and-run coverage though he did play a lot of zone off the ball at Iowa...Very instinctual player who can further improve if he cleans up his footwork and speeds up his recognition skills.
