What the scouts are saying:

"The 6-foot, 210-pounder was excellent in run support and nimble in space before his injury, but will have to show he’s got his speed back if he wants to be selected in the early rounds of this draft." (CollegeFootballTalk)

"A virtual coach on the field. Highly instinctive defender who frequently points out formations, alerting teammates to potential play-calls. Gritty." (Rob Rang, CBSSports.com)

"A coach's son, Sunseri has requisite athletic ability for the pro game, but his head for the game rates among his best traits. Has the size, tackling ability and dependability to make a living as a backup and core special-teams player. Draft stock could be impacted by 2013 season-ending torn ACL." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)
