Strengths
  • Takes accurate angles to the ballcarrier. A strong, aggressive tackler and doesn't back down against the run.
  • Flashes intimidating attitude and will crush tiptoeing receivers across the middle.
  • Can deliver the big hit and isn't afraid to jump inside to slow the ball.
  • Trusts his eyes with very good awareness. Has very good reaction skills to break quickly on the ball.
  • Lean, athletic build with plenty of room for additional muscle mass. Legitimate NFL-caliber athlete.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to improve his footwork and balance in coverage. Transitions out of his backpedal too early and doesn't look natural moving in reverse.
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
  • Questionable technique and he gets lazy with fundamentals, sometimes getting high in his backpedal and will breach the coverage call seeking flashy plays
  • Takes poor angles on the ball and lacks the pure speed to chase down the ballcarrier.
  • Lowers his shoulder for the big hit rather than wrapping up securely.
