Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Adequate change-of-direction agility and straight-line speed to contain.
  • Good not great quickness and change of direction agility. Chases, using a long spin move to clear blocks. Low, strong off the line.
  • Has the long arms and hand strength to win at the point consistently; strong throughout the upper body and has good agility for his size.
  • Flashes nimble feet to chase running backs and mobile quarterbacks to the sideline when lined up at end. Spins off blocks to get back into the play.
  • Vision to locate the ball and recognize cut blocks. Can rip past blockers and pull down ballcarriers when he cannot fully disengage from linemen.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Hands aren't strong or active enough to disengage consistently. Gets good push, but will not bull rush NFL tackles.
  • Rarely the first player off the snap, even when lined up over the ball, but his length, effort and short-area quickness still pressures double teams and helps penetrate gaps.
