Strengths
  • Works hard to get better and gives top effort on every play. Heads-up defender who shows good field awareness.
  • Spends a lot of time outside the box in coverage, but he has the strength to hold the edge against large tight ends and linemen.
  • Flashes strength to punch or stiff-arm to get off blocks. Stays with plays downfield, often making tackles even after being hit by multiple linemen.
  • Tough between-the-tackles defender who shimmies past blockers to fill lanes. Downhill, aggressive run-stuffer with enough strength to stop ballcarriers in the hole.
  • Coordinated footwork and balance. Makes more plays in pass coverage than expected because of his natural football instincts.
Weaknesses
  • Lacks elite quickness and change-of-direction ability to handle NFL slot receivers after initial contact.
  • Chase speed is below average, and he gets too upright as a pass rusher - needs to play with better leverage.
  • Attacks the line but needs work on stacking and shedding blocks.
  • Chase speed is below average, and he gets too upright as a pass rusher - needs to play with better leverage.
  • Hips are a bit high, arms are long, and waist is narrow, which limits his ability to anchor and turn. Not much of a pass rusher if there is not an open lane.
