"Honestly, the thing I like about Lamarcus is that he graduated from high school early, so we know he is a really good student and focused and determined. He's a two-sport athlete. He played both ways in football, offense and defense. He has great awareness of the game. He also has great physical attributes, specifically his length and his speed. We think he'll run really well and has great lanes to defend at corner."
