Pos: 
Explosive, athletic safety prospect with big upside. Stays with assignments, crashes upfield to defend the run and gives effort. Flexible, very quick and breaks down well. Fast in every direction of the field, rarely off his feet and constantly around the action. Strong, has a smooth and fluid style and drives his shoulders through ball carriers.
Neg: 
Possesses average ball skills, does not track the pass in the air well and gets twisted in coverage. Unpolished as a player and rarely makes plays with his back to the ball.
Analysis: 
Hooker is a terrific run-defending defensive back with the size and substance to be a strong safety. He plays with a special-teams mentality and should also be an asset on coverage units.
