Summary

Iloka is a defensive back with intriguing size and athleticism, who has logged 40 starts in his career. While his game needs some refinement, particularly in the angles he takes, his ability to cover athletic tight ends will make him attractive to teams.

Strengths

Iloka possess great size, with incredibly long arms, and he plays faster than his 40 would indicate. He has shown the ability to come up to the line and be effective in disrupting receivers or tight ends in the press. Keeps his pad level low when dropping back, and maintains this pad level when he is asked to turn and run. Iloka also seems to do a good job of reading the QB’s eyes, tracks the football well, and has a burst to close. In the running game, Iloka uses his long arms to wrap ball carriers and delivers a nice pop on contact.

Weaknesses

As with most other long defensive backs, he struggles with changing directions. Iloka also doesn’t look natural coming in and out of his breaks. Iloka’s biggest issue comes from the poor angles he takes. Iloka really struggles to break down and make tackles in open space. Frequently he can be side stepped in one on one situations with the ball carrier.
