Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Quick to read run, showing good agility and speed to get past blockers and finish. Experienced in coverage and gets a strong jam on outside receivers.
  • Reads the quarterback to anticipate and is a candidate to play outside.
  • A bit stiff but makes the clean open-field tackle. Good effort in pursuit.
  • Combines very good instincts with above-average reaction skills. Almost always finds the ball in traffic.
  • Tougher between the tackles than many expect. Fluid and quick drop into zone, covers enough ground to be Tampa-2 "MIKE" and knows where the markers are.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Doesn't have enough speed, power or bulk to fit any LB position perfectly in the NFL.
  • Lacks the strength to blow up fullbacks and bulk/length to prevent getting engulfed by better linemen at the second level.
