Strengths
  • Plays fast, flows with the action, showing smooth lateral agility and short-area burst. Has good instincts and awareness to quickly find 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.
  • Reads the quarterback to anticipate and is a candidate to play outside.
  • Combines very good instincts with above-average reaction skills. Almost always finds the ball in traffic.
  • Quick to read run, showing good agility and speed to get past blockers and finish. Experienced in coverage and gets a strong jam on outside receivers.
Weaknesses
  • Loses size battle to many tight ends and is easily pushed away on out routes.
  • Has lean limbs and needs to get stronger and add bulk to his frame.
  • Occasionally overruns plays due to aggressive nature. Hesitates when facing running back Blocks while rushing the passer.
  • Gets caught with the eyes in the backfield at times. Strong backs can run through his tackle attempts if he's not in position.
  • Plays upright. Ducks his head and fails to wrap up at times. Inconsistent in giving full effort to be the second man in on the play. Must learn to use hands to beat blocks.
