Overview:

Joseph finished his career at Dubuque, where he played in 31 career games, had 168 tackles, 15 interceptions, 35 pass breakups, and 1 forced fumble. He has good size, he has good speed, is a tackling machine, and a ball hawk. He has good instincts, is a hard hitter, a solid cover cornerback, and a shut down cornerback. He is very physical, he does not back down, and is very relentless. He is also a defensive play maker, and difference maker on defense. On the other hand, while he has good speed, he does not have elite speed, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I see Joseph being an early day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
