Jason’s Official 2018 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Arizona S Dane Cruikshank

Dane Cruikshank, S, Arizona

Scouting Report:

Cruikshank finished his career at Arizona, where he played in 25 career games, had 135 tackles, 7.0 for loss, 5 interceptions, 17 pass breakups, and 1 forced fumble. He has good size, he has great speed, and is a tackling machine. He was a ball hawk, and he is a solid cover defensive back. He was a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. He is a hard hitter, a tough nosed player, and has good instincts. He is very physical, and does not back down. He was a 2-year starter at Arizona, he is a relentless defender, and a ferocious defender. On the other hand, he has issues with defensive pass interference calls, and he is not the biggest defensive back, as he could be seen more as a safety/linebacker hybrid in the NFL. With that said, I view Cruikshank as a day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
