By Pro Football WeeklyNotes: Younger brother of former North Carolina State All-American and current Rams WR Torry Holt. Redshirted in 1998. Started his career by blocking two punts vs. Texas, enabling N.C. State to upset the Longhorns. Played in every game and started once in '99. Started in 2000 and '01. Won second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors in 2000 and first-team honors in '01. Had 22 tackles, broke up one pass and blocked two punts in 1999; 89-7 and one interception to go along with three blocked field goals in 2000; and had 104-5-1 and four blocked field goals in '01. Finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award in '02 and All-ACC. Had 92 tackles, broke up seven passes, intercepted two and had a sack. Also blocked a field goal and had two punt blocks. Positives: Is an exceptional leader, special-teams player and athlete who blocked 12 kicks in his career. Takes good angles and is smart, big and a physical presence in run support. Has good hands and coordination. Has NFL size and a 35-inch vertical leap. Is alert in zone coverage. Always seems to be prepared, can read and anticipate and has loose hips. Will plant and drive. Negatives: Doesn't look comfortable in man-to-man coverage, lacks quickness to accelerate in pass coverage and tends to get too high in his backpedal. Isn't explosive in his movements like his brother and will miss tackles. Would be a perfect safety if he had the pure speed. Loses a lot in transition. Lacks upper-body strength.Summary: Passes the eyeball test and looks the part, but can be stiff laterally and doesn't have elite speed.* Player biographies are provided by Pro Football Weekly.
