  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Closes to the ball quite well and possesses the hands to snatch throws away from his frame.
  • Good strength to tackle. Plays with high energy and is a tough-minded overachiever.
  • Quicker than he is fast but has a burst to close in zone coverage and plays physical at the line in man.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lacks the recovery speed to catch receivers if he waits for them to arrive.
  • Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
