He'll be entering his third season as a starter for Cal in 2012 and needs to reassure scouts that he can remain healthy as he missed the Stanford game in 2010 due to injury, as well.
Weaknesses: Gets physical with the ballcarrier but too often ends up on the ground and has finishing issues in run support. Throws his body around, but often just slides off. Overaggressive in coverage and often bites on fakes. Better athlete than he's given credit for, but he lacks the quick-twitch qualities desired for the position to be left alone on an island. Durability concerns after missing at least one game in each of his years at Cal because of injury, including a head injury in 2012.
