Bio: 
Two-year starter who 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 after transferring from junior college.
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.
