PLAYERS
Marcus Lott
Position: S
Class:  Sr
HT: 6'1"
WT: 195 lbs.
40 Time: 4.65
Conference: Big South
Biography: Three-year starter who finished with 41 tackles and broke up four passes as a senior after putting up 67 tackles/2 interceptions/3 pass breakups the prior year. Big South Football Scholar Athlete of the Year in 2011 as well as an Academic All-American.

Positives: Tough and smart run-defending safety who is best playing downhill. Displays a good head for the ball, gets his teammates in proper position and remains disciplined with assignments. Fluid pedaling in reverse and effective covering receivers in a short field. Aggressive and has a burst to the action. Forcefully makes his way up the field, always willing to throw pad into the pile and a solid open-field tackler. Squares into ballcarriers and brings them down at the point of attack.

Negatives: Lacks lateral range and does not display top speed to the sidelines. Average ball skills in center field.

Analysis: Lott was a terrific college player who excelled in the classroom and on the field, but lacks top size/speed numbers for the next level. He'll get looks by a zone defense but must make his mark on special teams.

Projection: FA
