Oliver Celestine

S | (5-11, 195, 4.57) | Texas Southern
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Redshirted in 1998. Started five games in '99, 10 games in '00 and nine games in '01. Played strong safety in '99 and '00 and moved to free safety in '01. Had 25 tackles and one pass broken up in '99; 57-7 and two interceptions in '00; and 65-6-3 in '01. Played 10 games in '02, posting 82 tackles, 91 tackles for loss, 4½ sacks, six interceptions and three passes broken up.

Positives: Aggressive downhill player with good speed for a safety. Hard hitter with adequate range. Better hitter than tackler. Plays best in the box.

Negatives: Lacks burst and explosion. A little stiff and lacks upper-body strength. Plays out of control and misses tackles, especially in space. Undisciplined and erratic. Struggles turning out of the backpedal and does not take good angles to the ball.

Summary: Is not a special player in any area, but his instincts may be enough to get him a look late in the draft.
