Tyler Sash scouting report

Tyler Sash S Iowa
Ht: 6’0″

Wt: 211

Three-year starter who enters the draft after his redshirt-junior year. Plenty of experience against top competition. Does a great job reading the play and always seems to find himself in position to make a play. Top intangibles; a hard worker and a leader on and off the field. Plays faster than his timed speed. Patient in zone coverage; waits for the play to develop and makes very few missteps. Good ball skills.
Not an elite athlete. Makes a lot of plays by putting himself in position, but doesn’t have the speed or quickness to make up for errors when he does get caught out of position.
Sash may not have a high ceiling due to his relative lack of athleticism, but he’s a very safe bet to develop into a solid backup and special teams contributor at the worst. He’s probably best suited to play strong safety at the next level, but he’s versatile enough to line up at either safety position if needed.
