2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Eddie Whitley, FS, Virginia Tech
The Charlotte, NC native has good size at 6'1'' and 195 pounds. He consistently runs in the 4.5s of the 40-yard dash and he has been clocked as fast as 4.45 from that distance. Whitley did not see any action as a return man for the Hokies, but his speed and elusiveness make him dangerous with the ball in his hands. It was also a reason why he played rover, giving him a sense of free reign to fly all over the field on defense. Whitley also returned one interception for 43 yards during his senior campaign. He has room to add a little bit more bulk to his frame, and that will allow him to be even more physical with opposing wide receivers and running backs. Whitley has the experience to step in right away and contribute on defense and in special teams coverage. He should be a third or fourth-round pick in the upcoming draft.
