Strengths
  • Best attribute. Extreme quickness off the edge, has the flexibility to turn the corner.
  • Closes quickly on relatively immobile quarterbacks. A consistently heavy hitter who flashes explosiveness and the ability to separate the ball.
  • 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.
  • Has very good playing speed and is fast in pursuit, chasing down the action with a closing burst. Coordinated and looks natural in space.
  • Greet feel in coverage. Often arrives at the receiver at the same time as the ball, giving up few yards after the catch. Possesses straight-line speed to stay with or chase down receivers in man.
  • Gets pressures on inside stunts and was too explosive for college guards to handle.
  • Reacts well to draw plays and misdirection, sniffs out screens to his side of the field. Keeps his eyes in the backfield when rushing the passer and uses hands and strength to stay in the play.
Weaknesses
  • His lateral agility and burst often put him in position to make big plays, but he takes questionable routes to the ball and struggles to avoid blockers when in pursuit.
  • 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.
  • Possesses average instincts. More likely to make plays with quick reactions than by diagnosing.
