Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 5 - Pick Number: 146 (NYJ)
- Takes accurate angles to the ballcarrier. A strong, aggressive tackler and doesn't back down against the run.
- Strong hands to make plays on the ball, effective blitzer who shows well-coached technique and awareness.
- A well-put-together athlete with a strong build. Plays fast and flies to the ball with accurate angles.
- Has good body control and balance to redirect and break down in the open field.
- Possesses a versatile skill set to play in various zone and man coverage - good size match up against bigger targets.
- 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.
- Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
- A downhill defender whose shortcomings athletically are exposed in coverage. He is a much better player facing the action.
- Has only average long speed and body flexibility.
