Considered a better athlete than his older brother, Hamza, also a former WSU Cougar now playing for the Denver Broncos, Husain has the size and speed scouts are looking for and was an effective ball-hawk throughout his career. Despite his athleticism and three starting seasons, Abdullah lacks the instincts scouts prefer at the position, making him a late-round developmental prospect.
Positives: Long, lean build with room for additional growth. Best attribute might be his agility and straight-line speed. Reads the quarterback's eyes and can break on the pass. Good late burst to close and the body control to make the tough interception. Good lateral quickness to break down in space and make the secure tackle. Has struggled in terms of reading the action and reacting quickly throughout his career, but was more consistent in this area as a senior despite playing with an inexperienced secondary.
Negatives: Lacks preferred instincts for the position - especially for a player with his experience. Often a step late to react. Takes questionable angles in pursuit, leading to unnecessary extra yards gained by opponents. Lacks bulk and though generally a reliable open-field tackler, lacks any real pop in his hitting.
