Detroit Lions 2015 NFL Draft Watch List: Combine Preview – Seniors

6 of 6

Tra’Mayne Bondurant (#21), FS – Arizona

Despite having a rough start to the 2014 season, Tra’Mayne Bondurant regained the confidence and trust of his coaches and teammates. After briefly quitting the team due to family issues over the summer, the senior safety had to work his way back up to starting for the Wildcats again – something he did not achieve until late September against Cal.

On the season, the 5-10, 216 lb. safety had two interceptions, two touchdowns (interception and fumble return), 80 tackles, six and half tackles for loss, and two sacks. Two things jump out on tape when you watch Bondurant: instincts and effort. Seemingly always around the football, Bondurant possesses the fluidity to play man coverage as a nickel defender and has a knack for breaking on the ball.

He also keys and diagnoses quickly, consistently flying up the field in run support. A versatile defender, having previously played in Arizona’s “spur” safety role for two seasons as part of their 3-3-5 defense, Bondurant has the potential to surprise at the next level.
