Height: 6-1 Weight: 224 lbs
Position rank: #18
Overall Rating: 67.0/100
GreenBay Packers Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 6 - Pick Number: 220 (GB)
Strengths
  • Closes quickly on relatively immobile quarterbacks. A consistently heavy hitter who flashes explosiveness and the ability to separate the ball.
  • Flashes closing speed and agility to reach passers from the blind side or up the middle before they can escape.
  • Combines very good instincts with above-average reaction skills. Almost always finds the ball in traffic.
  • A bit stiff but makes the clean open-field tackle. Good effort in pursuit.
  • Plays fast, flows with the action, showing smooth lateral agility and short-area burst. Has good instincts and awareness to quickly find the ball.
Weaknesses
  • Must work on using violent hands and defeating cut blocks. Also needs to build a variety of pass-rush moves.
  • Lacks the strength to blow up fullbacks and bulk/length to prevent getting engulfed by better linemen at the second level.
  • Possesses below-average instincts for the linebacker position. Leaves more plays on the field than he makes.
  • His lateral agility and burst often put him in position to make big plays, but he takes questionable routes to the ball and struggles to avoid blockers when in pursuit.
  • Loses size battle to many tight ends and is easily pushed away on out routes.
