Overall Rating: 56/100
Las Vegas Raiders Signed as an undrafted free agent by Las Vegas Raiders
Strengths
  • Possesses a short, squatly build to slip through gaps quickly. Legitimate NFL-caliber instincts
  • His versatility and commitment could give him a chance at sticking on a roster on special teams.
  • A bit stiff but makes the clean open-field tackle. Good effort in pursuit.
  • Possesses a compact, muscular frame well suited to playing inside. Flashes lateral agility to elude blockers and the strong upper body with heavy hands to rip through blocks.
  • Thickly-built and dedicated in the weight room. Quick to the hole and can make plays behind the line.
Weaknesses
  • Can be too hesitant when he doesn't find the ball immediately.
  • Not a sudden or quick-twitch athlete. Will never be the strongest player on the field and can struggle to shed from different angles.
  • Lacks the strength to blow up fullbacks and bulk/length to prevent getting engulfed by better linemen at the second level.
  • Slips off too many ballcarriers and needs to complete tackles - will go for the big hit instead of consistently wrapping up.
  • One-speed player, lacking dynamic qualities and doesn't look natural in reverse. Lacks the fluidity to be consistent dropping against the pass with unpolished cover skills.
