Iowa safety Tyler Sash has just informed me that he will be entering the 2011 NFL Draft. The junior was a first-team All-Big Ten selection in the 2009 and 2010 seasons, and leaves the Hawkeyes with 13 career interceptions.
Talking to league scouts, Sash is projected as mid-round pick and is expected to run in the low 4.5’s, which will help his draft stock.
Sash can play in a Cover 2 system and has the ability to walk down to the line of scrimmage and play over the tight end. The type of safety will make an immediate impact on special teams and appeal to NFL coaching staffs looking for a young playmaker to compete with veteran talent in camp.
