Scouting Reports – 2012

George Iloka scouting report


George Iloka S Boise State #8
Ht: 6’4″

Wt: 225

 
Strengths:
Impressive size. Good all-around athlete. Looks fluid in coverage considering his size. Has more than enough size and strength to further develop his tackling skills. Impressive leaping ability; can be an asset in coverage in the red zone.
Weaknesses:
Simply misses too many tackles. Doesn’t know how to wrap guys up and bring them to the ground; dives and swipes with his arms. Below-average ball skills; won’t come up with many interceptions. Doesn’t consistently track the ball and put himself into position to make plays. Clashed with coach Chris Petersen on multiple occasions early in his career, but coaching staff says he has matured.
Comments:
Considering his size and athleticism, Iloka is a very disappointing prospect. He has everything you can’t teach, but he doesn’t put it together on the field. There is plenty to like about him from a physical standpoint, and he definitely has the tools to develop into a starter at either free or strong safety, but he needs to improve in every aspect of his game. Iloka is boom-or-bust prospect who probably shouldn’t come off the board until the 3rd day of the draft.
