Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Quicker than he is fast but has a burst to close in zone coverage and plays physical at the line in man.
  • Aware in the red zone, stays on the back line to take away fade throws. Capable of making quarterbacks pay for late throws.
  • Lean, athletic build with plenty of room for additional muscle mass. Legitimate NFL-caliber athlete.
  • Gives up his body in run support with a very good closing burst.
  • Closes to the ball quite well and possesses the hands to snatch throws away from his frame.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lowers his shoulder for the big hit rather than wrapping up securely.
  • Takes poor angles on the ball and lacks the pure speed to chase down the ballcarrier.
