Kansas City Chiefs Signed as an undrafted free agent by Kansas City Chiefs
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.
  • Can deliver the big hit and isn't afraid to jump inside to slow the ball.
  • Good hustle player who puts himself in the action when he's not directly involved. Knows how to use his height and vertical leap.
  • Flashes intimidating attitude and will crush tiptoeing receivers across the middle.
Weaknesses
  • Questionable technique and he gets lazy with fundamentals, sometimes getting high in his backpedal and will breach the coverage call seeking flashy plays
  • Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
  • Opens his hips too early and allows himself to get turned around in coverage.
  • 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.
  • Needs to improve his footwork and balance in coverage. Transitions out of his backpedal too early and doesn't look natural moving in reverse.
