Whitehead finished his career at Pittsburgh, where he played in 31 career games, had 235 tackles, 8.5 for loss, 0.5 sacks, 3 interceptions, 9 pass breakups, 2 forced fumbles, and 3 fumbles recovered. He has great speed, he is a hard hitter, and a run stuffing defensive back. He is also a good cover defensive back, he is very relentless on defense, is very physical and does not back down. He is also a tackling machine, a defensive play maker, and difference maker on defense. On the other hand, he is a but undersized, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I see Whitehead being a late day 2, to early day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
