Strengths
  • Aggressive with good awareness to track the ball and attack. Tenacious, tough, competItIve and versatile.
  • High-effort, thickly built defender with good strength and the leverage to create a pile. Locates_ the ball quickly and pursues with passion, showing_ good lateral agility while extending the play to the sideline.
  • Flashes upper-body strength to rip and has the punch to push through interior linemen on stunts and twists.
  • Excellent hustle-and-chase tackler. Good closing speed with change of direction to corral mobile quarterbacks.
  • Average quickness and power and his bull rush will be stonewalled. Comes off the snap high, losing leverage.
Weaknesses
  • Average size, strength and lacks the bulk in his upper and lower body to hold up on the line. Not a sudden athlete. Very ordinary flexibility and fluidity; not overly explosive and lacks the speed to threaten the edge. Plays upright with limited power to disengage _and is not overpowering in any aspect.
  • Not an elite athlete with average functional strength and size. Lacks the length to fend off blocks and can be too energetic and lose his angle. Doesn't have a natural position at the next level.
  • Plays tall, lacks athleticism to break down against elusive ballcarriers.
  • Has limited athleticism and range. Lacks natural explosion or first-step burst to consistently threaten the edge.
  • Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
