S Larry Asante Scouting Report

S Larry Asante, Nebraska
Pos. Rank: 12 Grade: 4th Round Height: 6-0 Weight: 212 40: 4.63 Year: 5-Sr.

The Good: Well-sized run-defending safety who's been consistent in college. Good athlete, plays an aggressive brand of football, and looks intimidating in centerfield. Aggressively lays his shoulders into ball-carriers and lands some vicious hits. Shows a burst of closing speed, quickly defends the run and a solid open field tackler. Solid hands for the interception. Adequate skills pedaling in reverse and smooth opening his hips.

The Bad: Does not display a sense of timing in coverage nor feel in pass defense. Late reacting when the ball is in the air.

The Verdict: Asante possesses the size and mentality to be used as a conventional strong safety at the next level. His game offers a nice degree of upside potential.
