Therezie highlightsClick Here to view this Link.
School: Miami (Fla.) Jackson
Buzz: Therezie is a punishing player from the safety spot who hits like a linebacker but can move around in the secondary and play the pass just as effectively. When he is able to get a running start, he will plug the hole against the run with his shoulder pads down and create painful collisions in the hole. If a ball is thrown across the middle and he is dropped back, the wide receiver will feel his arms shortening as he prepares for the brunt of a major hit.
