Ben Ericksen

School: Illinois State
Position: S
Bio: Former wide receiver who moved to safety as a junior then started the next two seasons. Awarded all-America and all-Conference honors last year after posting 67 tackles/7 interceptions/1 pass breakup. Junior numbers included 27 tackles.
Positive: Developing defensive back with the size and speed to play at the next level. Effectively diagnoses the action, keeps his head on a swivel, and recognizes coverage assignments in the middle of the field. Works to keep the action in front of him, stays with receivers laterally, and plays smart football. Instinctive, chases hard, and works to make plays. Quick up the field defending the run and a solid open-field tackler.
Negative: Displays limited quickness. Does not get great depth in pass coverage for a true centerfielder. Inefficient and does not always take correct angles.
Analysis: Ericksen watched his game take off last season and really developed into an all-around safety. He offers upside and is a developmental prospect who should only improve as he physically matures and receives additional experience in the secondary.
