Position rank: #26
Overall Rating: 70.0/100
Buffalo Bills Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 6 - Pick Number: 212 (BUF)
Strengths
  • 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.
Weaknesses
  • 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.
