Strengths Weaknesses

Joseph tends to be an ankle biter at times and has room to clean up his tackling technique, but he is a more than willing run defender with the drive quickness to attack downhill. He will take some unnecessary steps in coverage and needs to clean up his footwork, but is quick to recover and shows loose movements.

Joseph's anticipation and instincts are still in the development phase, but he has shown improved eye use to make quick decisions and stay true to his aggressive nature.

He has started all 25 games at free safety since arriving in Morgantown and is still far from hitting his football ceiling, making his NFL potential an intriguing storyline moving forward.

Player Overview

The Mountaineers' defense was a sieve in 2013, but Joseph was one of the few bright spots on an otherwise disappointing unit. He finished last season with 68 tackles, displaying rangy play speed with the ability to make stops at every level of the field.
