Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 5 - Pick Number: 152 (DEN)
- Good speed in pursuit with the chase skills to track down the ballcarrier.
- Can deliver the big hit and isn't afraid to jump inside to slow the ball.
- Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
- Gives up his body in run support with a very good closing burst.
- Has smooth body control with the fluid ability to plant and redirect in any direction. Plays fast and decisive, arriving to the play with fierce intentions.
- Not a major liability in man coverage. Good enough foot speed and length to stay with slot receivers in four-wide sets on short patterns.
- Does a very good job of reading the eyes of the quarterback and reacting with good field awareness and ball skills.
- Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
- Has tense ankles and hips with choppy footwork when attempting to redirect and doesn't always look natural changing directions.
- Closing speed and willingness to make the big hit make him one of the more versatile safeties in the class.
