D.J. Campbell
Round 7, Pick 216
Position: S
Class:  Sr
School: California
HT: 5'11"
WT: 206 lbs.
40 Time: 4.62
Conference: Pac-12
Biography: Posted 71 tackles/2 interceptions/3 breakups as a senior when he became a full-time starter. Junior totals included 21 tackles.

Positives: Underrated safety with a developing game. Effectively diagnoses the action, quick up the field and displays a nice move to the throw in coverage. Displays an outstanding burst of closing and recovery speed, aggressively defends the run and wraps up tackling. Throws his body around the field to make plays. Shows good quickness.

Negatives: Marginal skills in coverage, all too often chasing opponents rather then making plays on the ball. Too quick up the field at times and gets caught out of position.

Analysis: Campbell displayed steady progress in his game the past two years and has been overlooked in the scouting community. He has enough ability to line up as a zone safety and comes with a special teams mentality.

Projection: FA
