A one-year starter at Notre Dame, Joseph played free safety in defensive coordinator Al Golden’s scheme. He put his name on the NFL radar with his All-American redshirt freshman season at Northwestern (his name is on the second deck of Ryan Field as one of only 14 consensus All-Americans in school history), but his consistency and impact the past two seasons fell short of the hype. In coverage, Joseph shows range to reach his landmarks in deep zones or attack plays in the flat, but his ball skills are not as impressive as his career interception total would suggest. Though he’s made improvements in the run game, he is prone to reckless tendencies and hasn’t been a secure, open field tackler. Overall, Joseph works well from his centerfield perch to read and put himself in position to make plays, but his lack of explosive traits and inconsistent technique will be more noticeable versus NFL competition. He projects as a potential backup and special-teamer.
