Joe Lefeged
Joe Lefeged - Rutgers (HT: 5-11⅝ - WT: 210)
Combine 40: 4.43 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 10 of 35

Positives: Has excellent speed, ran the fastest 40 at the combine amongst safeties (4.43)... Has a good frame for a strong safety and kick returner, possesses adequate bulk and good height... Is pretty physical for his size, has the ability to make the big hit, forced eight fumbles in four years at Rutgers including four in 2010... Is a great special teams performer, may find an immediate role as a special teamer in the NFL... Has good instincts in coverage, is pretty quick to locate the football... Has pretty good ball skills, does a good job of getting to the ball at its highest point.

Negatives: Does not have great range despite having good speed, may be a liability when asked to cover large portions of the field in zone coverage... Not a consistent wrap-up tackler, has shown poor form on many occasions, gets too high at contact... Takes a lot of missteps, shows poor body control and change-of-direction ability, not a very fluid player... Is not great at getting off blocks, can be taken out of running plays fairly easily... Never had high interception totals, only picked off two passes in four-year career.
