Bio: 
Junior college transfer who started two of his three seasons at Arizona. Tied for the team lead with two forced fumbles and made 58 tackles (six for loss) with one interception and three pass breakups as a senior. Recorded 69 tackles, one interception and three PBUs in 2016. Posted 17 tackles as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Instinctive and aggressive safety who comes off a disappointing season. Breaks down well, displays a good head for the ball and takes proper angles to the action. Fires up the field to defend the run, displays a terrific burst to the ball out of his plant and plays with a sense of timing. Secure open-field tackler who wraps up and brings down ball carriers at the point of attack. Works hard to get involved in the action.
Neg: 
Late to react in man coverage and is usually a half-step behind. Does not display great lateral speed.
Analysis: 
Laguda is a polished safety with solid ball skills and ability in run defense, but he does not possess great upside. He offers potential in a zone system but must get his game back to where it was in 2016.
