Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Well-rounded player with the anticipation and pursuit downhill to close in the ground game while also showing the coordinated body control and timing in coverage to make plays in pass defense.

Understands pursuit angles and anticipates the action well, playing with a non-hesitant and aggressive demeanor. He shows the coordinated body control to flip-and-stick to hang with receivers vertically, using his heady instincts and quick eyes to make natural adjustments.

Drummond has the ballskills to make acrobatic plays on the ball with very good timing and coordination. He exhibits top confidence on and off the field and is well respected by his coaches and teammates, also making impact plays on special teams coverage.

WEAKNESSES: Despite his toughness downhill, he doesn't have an ideal body type with a lean-shaped frame and average muscle tone throughout. Drummond needs to consistently finish once he makes contact.

Drummond is the most consistent Big Ten defensive back I've seen on tape so far and is very much in the competition to be the first senior safety drafted next spring.

--Dane Brugler (9/5/14)
