Strengths
  • Plays the ball as if it was thrown for him, showing burst back to the ball as well as good timing for the jump ball.
  • Stout and feisty. Will engage, shed and securely wrap the ballcarrier. Very fluid hips, backpedal and change-of-direction agility.
  • Trusts his eyes with very good awareness. Has very good reaction skills to break quickly on the ball.
  • Anticipation skills and explosive, downhill burst could make him a star in zone-based scheme.
  • Should excel as a zone defender because of his closing speed to wrap receivers after the catch.
Weaknesses
  • 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.
  • Holds the ball loosely. Inconsistent in run support. Average tackler
  • Struggles to break down in space and can be a liability against the run at the second level.
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
  • He's not a tenacious tacker and plays the position with a wide receiver's mentality.
