Sean Cattouse NFL Draft Profile

Sean Cattouse, Senior, Safety, California



Sean Cattouse did not see too much playing time during his freshman campaign, but he did earn two starts in California’s biggest two games. Filling in for an injured safety, Cattouse started the Big Game against Stanford and recorded a season high five tackles. He also earned a start in the Emerald Bowl. His impressive play late in 2008 led to higher expectation in 2009. He did not begin the year in the starting lineup, but worked his way there by the end of the campaign.

Yet again Cattouse found himself outside of the starting lineup to begin the 2010 season. However, he was a first-team preseason All-Pac-10 honoree. This time it was a hamstring injury that led to Cattouse playing limited snaps. But, as the case has always been, the safety did very well at the end of the year and ranked sixth on the Golden Bears with 59 tackles and led the squad with seven pass breakups.


Final Projection:

Cattouse is deceptively fast and will use his speed and strength to make some big plays. Any time he can get his hands on the ball, Cattouse is a threat to take it back for a touchdown. His highlight reel is impressive, but NFL scouts will want to see more consistency before he is considered a safe first round draft pick.
