Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
  • Flashes an explosive burst and can surprise better overall athletes with his ability to get upfield. Has a closing burst when given a free lane. Has the frame to consider moving inside
  • 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
  • Never out of a play, but can get out of control and work himself away from the action.
  • Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
