- Tough and scrappy with forceful nature to be physical at all levels of the field. Has good bulk on his frame to be aggressive in run support.
- Flashes intimidating attitude and will crush tiptoeing receivers across the middle.
- Strong hands to make plays on the ball, effective blitzer who shows well-coached technique and awareness.
- Flashes some physicality as a hitter.
- Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
- Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
- Lacks the timed speed to mirror and maintain contact downfield. Loses the ball on slow-developing plays and has a tendency to reach and grab when he gets antsy.
- Needs to get stronger. Too easily lost in the trash. Not a sudden athlete and shows body stiffness when attempting to quickly redirect.
- 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.
- Not great in man coverage. Does not have elite speed and loses speed/gears down while turning.
