Baltimore Ravens Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 3 - Pick Number: 104 (BAL)
Strengths
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Flashes some physicality as a hitter.
  • Good hustle player who puts himself in the action when he's not directly involved. Knows how to use his height and vertical leap.
  • Physical downfield and matches up well with bigger receivers. Tough and fiery with very good competitiveness. High-effort player.
  • Flashes intimidating attitude and will crush tiptoeing receivers across the middle.
Weaknesses
  • Questionable technique and he gets lazy with fundamentals, sometimes getting high in his backpedal and will breach the coverage call seeking flashy plays
  • Has only average long speed and body flexibility.
  • Opens his hips too early and allows himself to get turned around in coverage.
  • Needs to improve his footwork and balance in coverage. Transitions out of his backpedal too early and doesn't look natural moving in reverse.
  • Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
