Strengths
  • Has smooth body control with the fluid ability to plant and redirect in any direction. Plays fast and decisive, arriving to the play with fierce intentions.
  • Strong hands to make plays on the ball, effective blitzer who shows well-coached technique and awareness.
  • 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.
  • He is aggressive in run support, with a physical mentality, but struggles to break down space and leaves production on the field.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
Weaknesses
  • Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
  • Has below-average measurables for the position and lacks ideal length.
  • Needs to get stronger. Too easily lost in the trash. Not a sudden athlete and shows body stiffness when attempting to quickly redirect.
  • Not great in man coverage. Does not have elite speed and loses speed/gears down while turning.
  • 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.
