Cyhl---pronounced Kyle---Quarles---6-1, 208---good size, good feet, high tackler (like Wilson---which is a problem with him because he does not wrap)---looks tentative in space---not a great force guy versus the run---doesn't break down well, gets deked too easily---good packpedal in coverage, but seems to have trouble maintaing his cushion---gets caught peeking a lot.
Has the athletic attributes, 1SD, but is not at this point a very good, fundamental DB. Good on STs---might have a chance because of STs ability with a team that will try to teach him the fundamentals of tackling and playing man coverage.
I will tell you a safety prospect I am starting to like a lot---especially the more I see of him:
Brian Peters, 6-4, 215, Northwestern. Big, physical and surprisingly rangy. The last two years has close to 200 tackles and 6 ints. I saw an interview with him and he said the NFL safety he likes the best is Adrian Wilson because he's big and physical. Check this kid out on YouTube. I think he was 2nd Team All Big 10 the last two years.
