College Combine Results
Strengths
  • A bit stiff but makes the clean open-field tackle. Good effort in pursuit.
  • Has enough hustle and athleticism to make plays in the flat against running backs. Lacks height but has the vertical and timing to knock away passes when approaching the quarterback.
  • Uses his low center of gravity to flash leverage and strong, violent hands to create space and shed to either side. Also spins off blocks to disengage.
  • Strong and stout against the run, filling lanes with power and an attacking mentality.
  • Tougher between the tackles than many expect. Fluid and quick drop into zone, covers enough ground to be Tampa-2 "MIKE" and knows where the markers are.
Weaknesses
  • He's a tweener who lacks the bulk and strength to be a thumper inside and isn't fast enough to stay on the weak side in the NFL.
  • Doesn't have enough speed, power or bulk to fit any LB position perfectly in the NFL.
  • Not a sudden or quick-twitch athlete. Will never be the strongest player on the field and can struggle to shed from different angles.
  • Limited vision and is easily fooled by misdirection. Lacks range and lateral agility in coverage.
  • Stiff in space with poor lateral agility and range. Not fluid changing direction. Struggles to tackle in the open field and falls off too many tackles going for the TKO.
