Arizona Cardinals Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 7 - Pick Number: 243 (ARI)
Strengths
  • Good strength to tackle. Plays with high energy and is a tough-minded overachiever.
  • Gives up his body in run support with a very good closing burst.
  • Has good body control and balance to redirect and break down in the open field.
  • Good hustle player who puts himself in the action when he's not directly involved. Knows how to use his height and vertical leap.
  • 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.
Weaknesses
  • Has tense ankles and hips with choppy footwork when attempting to redirect and doesn't always look natural changing directions.
  • Takes poor angles on the ball and lacks the pure speed to chase down the ballcarrier.
  • Lowers his shoulder for the big hit rather than wrapping up securely.
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
