Projected Round
2nd/3rd
Pos: 
Aggressive and relatively athletic safety best facing the action. Forceful defender who displays a terrific straight-line burst of speed and sells out to defend the run and blitz the quarterback. Hard hitter who intimidates opponents and jars the ball loose from ball carriers. Displays solid lateral speed, flows well to the sidelines and wraps up to bring ball carriers down at the point of attack. Displays a good burst to the action.
Neg: 
Moves better downhill than in reverse. Adequate ball skills. Better against the run.
Analysis: 
Rapp possesses the size, athleticism and wherewithal to line up as a strong safety or in a zone system. He comes with a nice upside and should also be a special-teams demon.
