Hosley, Jayron

Card: Sage Hit Low Series 2012 Collectors Edition
Acquired: 2012, Target Box Breaker

A much needed improvement for SaGe Hit, after their disastrous looking 2011 set. What’s most impressive is the offering that they give inside the blaster boxes in including 2 autographs per box. Along with Hosely, that day I also acquired fellow 3rd rounder TY Hilton as well.

Jayron Hosley is an impressive, young, defensive back with a big play nose for the football, that played collegiality at Virginia Tech from 2009 to 2011.  In addition to his duties as a corner, he also returned 18 punts for 228 yards. 2010 was a banner year for Jayron, as had an impressive season lodging 39 tackles and 9 interceptions.  His 9 picks led the nation and earned him All-American Honors and the Walter Camp Award after the season.  A concussion and hamstring injury limited his 2011 Junior performance to 3 picks and 33 tackles. Hosley finished his collegiate career with 109 tackles, 3.5 tackles for losses, 1 sack, and 12 interceptions. Just a bit undersized at 5-10, and 171, Jayron makes up for it with explosive speed off the line and physical play both in run and pass support. He is considered one of the top cornerback prospects in the 2012 draft, but a failed drug test, and sent his stock plummeting. The Giants though nabbed Hosely at the bottom of round three.
