- Good key and diagnosis skills. Quickly locates the ball and shows no wasted motion in getting there. At least adequate lateral agility to avoid blockers and shows good vision and anticipation.
- A bit stiff but makes the clean open-field tackle. Good effort in pursuit.
- An aggressive run defender, filling run lanes hard, and won't shy from contact. Plays with violence to fight off blocks, flashing a physical nature. An intense, powerful hitter who willingly gives up his body.
- Intelligent player who can play "MIKE" linebacker despite his lack of size because of his instincts and ability to find the ball in traffic.
- Doesn't have enough speed, power or bulk to fit any LB position perfectly in the NFL.
- Loses size battle to many tight ends and is easily pushed away on out routes.
- Can be too hesitant when he doesn't find the ball immediately.
- Not a sudden or quick-twitch athlete. Will never be the strongest player on the field and can struggle to shed from different angles.
- Must work on using violent hands and defeating cut blocks. Also needs to build a variety of pass-rush moves.
