Pos: 
Nice-sized safety who has flashed ability. Two-year starter who posted 86 tackles in each of the past two seasons. Quick, explosive and shows the ability to stay on the receiver’s hip out of breaks. Fires up the field to defend the run, gets to the spot in lateral pursuit and shows a closing burst to the action. Sells out to make plays and sacrifices his body to make the tackle. Keeps the action in front of him and displays good range.
Neg: 
Struggles to make plays with his back to the ball. Slow to get his head back around and locate the pass in the air. Gets outpositioned by opponents and bigger tight ends. Late to react in coverage.
Analysis: 
West is a zone safety with enough physical skills to line up in dime situations and play special teams.
