West Virginia senior S Karl Joseph picked off his NCAA-leading fifth interception of the year Saturday against Oklahoma.
"Joseph sports a compact frame and shows little regard for his own welfare, exploding into ball-carriers," wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang. "He showed fluidity in coverage when dropping down from his traditional strong safety role to cover Oklahoma's slot receivers one on one and an understanding of route concepts, turning around to steal [Baker] Mayfield's pass in the fourth quarter." Joseph also had a huge hit on Sooners' stud wide receiver Dede Westbrook, which can be seen at the link below. "While scouts will appreciate Joseph's playmaking ability, consistency as an open-field tackler remains a concern," Rang wrote. "Unfortunately, the same heat-seeking missile mentality likely to earn his big hit some highlight reel action this week also resulted in a Sooners score just before the half when Joseph lunged (and missed) running back Joe Mixon in the open-field [on a 35-yard touchdown run]."
