Scouting Report: Strengths

- Agile run-stopper at end, extends to grab backs from the backside and possesses foot quickness and hustle to chase plays downfield. or to the sideline.
- Rarely goes to the ground, showing good balance from his high school wrestling days.
- Lower than offensive lineman on every short-yardage play. Good agility and ability to change direction for his size.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
