POSITIVES

A one-year starter at Cincinnati, Mike Tyson has been trying to make a name for himself. Experienced at safety and corner, he has the versatility and size that many teams are going to look for. He's adequate at playing inside and against the run, and his five interceptions as a senior will help come draft day. He's a tough player not afraid to make a hit. If you want to make your son tough, name him Sue or maybe Mike Tyson. 

       

NEGATIVES

He lacks long speed and the athletic hips to play outside at corner. Separation can be an issue for Tyson, and recovery speed is not an option. He doesn't transition well, turn and run or find the ball. He needs to make a good impression on special teams to get a franchise's attention in camp. 
 

PRO COMPARISON: Markelle Martin, Tennessee Titans

FINAL GRADE: 4.99/9.00 (Undrafted Free Agent)
