Bio: 
Two-year starter who led Northwestern with five interceptions and made 60 tackles (5.5 for loss) with nine pass breakups in 2017. Recorded 53 tackles (3.5 for loss), two interceptions and six PBUs as a junior.
Pos: 
Underrated safety prospect with excellent size. Effectively reads and diagnoses the action, keeps the play in front of him and willingly throws his pads into the pile. Works well with cornerbacks to bracket receivers over the middle of the field, shows good hands for the interception and makes a nice amount of plays on the ball. Quickly moves up the field to defend screen passes and the run but also moves laterally with speed.
Neg: 
Inefficient and doesn’t always take proper angles to the action. Struggles making plays with his back to the ball.
Analysis: 
Queiro is a strong safety prospect with a special-teams mentality. Best facing the action, he has the size, skill and ability to line up in a zone scheme.
