 Overview

  Tandy's size and physicality hides the fact he is one of the more successful passers in Kentucky high school history (8,609 career passing yards, 90 touchdowns). WVU coaches saw his four interceptions as a senior, however, and thought his best chance to make an impact would be on the defensive side of the ball--a seemingly wise move after his play the past couple of seasons.

He learned the cornerback position while redshirting, then played six games (making six tackles) and earned a start in the team's bowl game in 2008. Tandy's game improved as a full-time starter in 2009, when he made 61 tackles, four for loss, intercepted four passes and broke up seven others. Big East coaches thought enough of his excellent junior season (57 tackles, two TFL, six INT, 11 PBU) to vote him first-team all-conference in 2010.

If Tandy continues his growth as a defender in 2011, NFL scouts will overlook his average height and speed to consider selecting him in the top half of the draft. His strong build, tenacity, and willingness to go to the ball (resulting in several interceptions coming off tipped passes) give him a chance to start, or at least be a reliable nickel corner, at the next level.


 Analysis

  Positives: Best fit is in a zone scheme and lacks the vertical speed to shadow elite receivers. Keeps the ball and man in front of him in zone and might be a candidate to convert to safety. Thickly built for a corner and closes with intent, chasing laterally and is effective bringing down bigger targets.

Negatives: Zone-specific prospect who is likely only a fit in nickel or dime packages with predominantly man-to-man teams. Not consistent with his footwork, is a bit choppy in transition and is slow to find the ball on deep routes.
