Strengths
Fast and athletic; able to time jumps properly to get to ball before receiver; excellent range in the deep field; capable of running with receivers down or across field; closes quickly when in pursuit. Willing tackler.
Weaknesses
Isn't the most physical tackler; gets caught peeking at quarterback in man situations; prone to getting beaten by double moves; can be a step slow in diagnosing the action; occasionally plays flat footed; Has a thin frame that might not hold up over a 16 + game season.
Overall Analysis
Hooker is a great safety prospect with the ability to be a ball hawking free safety that roams the deep field. His athleticism and speed make him a certain top 10 selection and a day 1 starter. He has Pro Bowl potential at the next level if he stays healthy and plays in a system that allows him to roam the deep field.
