Pos: 
Tough, instinctive safety best between the numbers. Displays good recognition, quickly picks up assignments and stays with the action. Breaks down well, sells out to make plays and aggressively lays his shoulders into ball carriers to separate them from the ball. Takes proper angles to the action, displays good change of direction and nicely tracks the pass in the air. Flashes the ability to burst to the ball out of his plant.
Neg: 
Lacks the speed and quickness to be a starter at the next level. Really cannot recover or quickly close to the action.
Analysis: 
Battle is a tough, instinctive safety with limited athleticism and computer numbers. He's a traditional strong safety who can also play in a zone system, but Battle must stand out on special teams this summer.
