College Combine Results
Strengths
  • 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.
  • Gives effort between the tackles to find the ball and is willing to take on 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.
  • Thickly built with classic linebacker size, adequate strength and the smarts to cover up his athletic shortcomings in the right scheme.
  • 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.
Weaknesses
  • Lacks fluidity to hold up in space or drop in coverage. Washed out and caught in traffic in the middle of the field.
  • Chase speed is below average, and he gets too upright as a pass rusher - needs to play with better leverage.
  • 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.
  • Limited vision and is easily fooled by misdirection. Lacks range and lateral agility in coverage.
  • High-cut and long-legged, and he does not have elite acceleration.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
