Tyler Sash Scouting Report
Tyler Sash
Tyler Sash - Iowa (HT: 6-0 - WT: 211)
Combine 40: 4.62 - Position Rank: 4 of 35

Positives: Excellent frame and bulk for the position... Has a good motor and is very good in run support... Likes contact, is a good hitter and wrap-up tackler... Appears to have adequate speed, but is not a burner... Has good ball skills, recorded 13 interceptions in three years at Iowa... Does a good job wading through traffic near the line of scrimmage... Has very good coverage skills and above-average range... Physical and intense player, has a nose for the football and good instincts in coverage... Is a great in-the-box safety, projects well to the strong safety position in the NFL.

Negatives: Looks a little stiff in the hips and slow in the backpedal, at his best in pass coverage when lining up deep and keeping the play in front of him... Coming off shoulder surgery, durability might be a minor concern... Not a unique athlete, rather weak, only had 11 reps of 225 at the combine... Not a great man coverage defender, is best in deep zone coverage... Does not have the quickest feet, lacks fluidity when changing directions.
