Indianapolis Colts 2014 Training Camp Profile: Loucheiz Purifoy
The Indianapolis Colts needed help at the defensive back position. They have some decent starters with Vontae Davis and Greg Toler, and Darius Butler is a perfect fit in the nickel corner role. Other than those three the Colts are very thin at position. In comes cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy, an undrafted free agent out of the University of Florida.
Purifoy was the starting cornerback last year at Florida and played particularly well on a defense that had a lot of talent. He has skills that can translate to the NFL. Purifoy is very physical at the line of scrimmage when he is pressing the boundary receiver. He also plays like a cover two corner always having his eyes inside so he could recognize route combinations. He is an effective blitzer, because he is able to take smart angles to the quarterback or wherever the ball is going.
With all of these skills Purifoy should have at least been picked in the NFL Draft, but character questions and legal troubles didn’t help his situation. Teams are going to be more aware of a player’s background, and they aren’t going to waste a draft pick on a player who could leave them shorthanded down the road.
Purifoy can fit within the Colts this year, and if he keeps his head on straight he could make an impact immediately. His football skills translate to a nickel cornerback and should be behind Butler on the depth chart. He has also shown that he can be an effective special teams player, which is something teams value a lot.
Purifoy is smart player who rarely gets beat by the deep ball. He can see route combinations and make smart instinctive plays based on what he sees. Those skills can translate to a free safety position down the road, but that is his ceiling.
Colts fans should see his impact on special teams and in backup role this year behind Butler. But if he is called upon due to injury, he can fill the role without the Colts losing a step on defense.
