Weight 8 1/4" Hands Overview His father, Henry, was drafted by Tampa Bay before going to the Canadian Football League, and his brother, Shane, is a running back for the New England Patriots. Brock was a defensive back-running back who also ran track as a California prep. Saw action in nine games as a true freshman in 2010, making four starts at cornerback, and managed 10 tackles, no pass breakups and no interceptions. Started all 12 games at CB in 2011 and posted 67 tackles, seven pass breakups and one interception with 3.5 tackles for loss and one forced fumble. Was limited during 12 spring practice with a torn meniscus and was converted to a safety. Began the 12 season as a backup safety before starting seven of the final eight contests, registered 64-9-2 with 1 1/2 tackles for loss and one-half sack in 13 games. Logged 59-6-1 with 2 1/2 tackles for loss and one forced fumble. Started all 13 games the first six games at safety and the last seven at cornerback. Analysis Strengths Very good athlete with fluid movement skills and good range. Competes hard. Runs the alley and can negotiate traffic. Good zone awareness and route recognition. Understands angles and leverage. Can carry receivers in man coverage with little wasted movement in transition on speed turns. Good leaping ability. Very smart, motivated, team player with a passion for the game. Can line up the defense. Outstanding work ethic. Contributes as a gunner on special teams. Has NFL pedigree. His 25 bench-press reps were most among DBs at the combine, and his 4.07-second short shuttle was second among safeties. Weaknesses Has tiny hands, short arms and lacks overall bulk. Does not have ideal length to match up with NFL tight ends in coverage. Not an explosive hitter or forceful tackler. Hands are suspect -- smothers the ball and has just four career interceptions. Long-term durability could be a concern. Draft Projection Rounds 3-4 Bottom Line Intelligent, athletic, rangy free safety with desirable strength and cover skills to go along with football bloodlines. Needs to improve against the run but is instinctive and brings terrific intangibles that could propel him into a role as a starter and defensive leader.
