Gerod Holliman- Safety- Louisville
Size: 6’2 213lbs

 

  • Good instincts and angles of pursuit
  • Aggressive to ball- takes chances
  • Big hitter
  • Soft hands- 14 INTs in one year
  • Decent coverage skills

Kentucky v Louisville

Analysis: Holliman was amazingly productive in his one year as a starter in Louisville’s aggressive defense.  17 passes defensed and 14 interceptions, Holliman is aggressive in his pursuit of the ball and is not afraid to jump a route for the pick.  Reads quarterbacks well in zone, and will lay a hit on a receiver over the middle.

Need to improve:

  • One year wonder
  • Too aggressive making plays on the ball
  • Can get fooled by play action
  • Does not wrap up- limited effort
  • 20 missed tackles last season
  • Does not give full effort

Analysis: Some scouts wonder if Holliman was incredibly lucky in 2014 bringing down 14 INTs.  On tape, Holliman was a terrible tackler, he tries to bring down ball carriers with his shoulder pad instead of wrapping up.  That will get him no where fast at the next level.  Holliman will need to prove he is not a one year wonder, and that will start with the effort he puts forth on and off the field.

Round prediction: 3rd round
