PROS

  • Plays like a heat-seeking missile, seeking ball carriers and delivering jarring hits.
  • Great anticipation/quickness to jump on the ball. Tenacious ball-hawk skills. Fast enough to be used as a blister.
  • Extremely versatile; a defensive chess piece. Can play nickel, backer or safety. High football IQ.

CONS

  • Was exposed to freshman mistakes as a first year starter. Very correctable. Was thinking too much instead of reacting.

MEDICAL

  • In spring practice in Cravens' first year at USC, he tore his meniscus on April 5, 2013.
  • Entered 2014 with a sore knee.
