Notes:
Second Team All-Pac-10 Conference in both 2007 and 2008...Had six interceptions as a junior and returned two for touchdowns...Posted four interceptions as a senior, three of which went for scores...Big-play ability makes Nolan an attractive prospect...Started all 25 games for ASU over his final two collegiate seasons...At 6-2, Nolan has good height for the safety position...Is able to read the eyes of opposing quarterbacks and break on the ball quickly...Loves to hit and does so effectively...Is not a true burner in workouts but runs fast during the games which is much more important...Has good hands and ball skills...Can sometimes be a bit overaggressive, a trait of many playmakers...Biggest question about Nolan is whether or not he is fast enough to excel as a safety in the NFL.
