George Iloka, FS, Boise State

George Iloka is a tall safety prospect who is really shooting up draft boards after a strong Senior Bowl. With his display of size and speed, he'll definitely catch the attention of NFL teams looking for a safety who can cover bigger tight end targets.

Iloka has a great feel for the game, whether it is reading routes or feeling receivers in zone coverages. He sits in his drop and can keep his pad level low as he moves around the field. His speed is more than adequate, but he's a long athlete so he doesn't have a special initial burst. He can track the football well behind him and make plays on the ball. He can line up in the slot and hold his own in man. Once he gets moving, he can really click and make the bang-bang play.

As a tackler, he uses his length well to wrap up and close on the ball-carrier. He needs to do a better job of bringing the man down to the ground, but he certainly doesn't shy away from contact. Iloka is only average moving laterally, but he can make up for his lack of quickness by utilizing his strong football IQ. Some teams are looking specifically for this type of safety, so he could go a bit earlier than where he is currently projected.
