Strengths
  • Extremely aggressive to come up and put his body in traffic to make tackles.
  • Flashes intimidating attitude and will crush tiptoeing receivers across the middle.
  • Can deliver the big hit and isn't afraid to jump inside to slow the ball.
  • Good hustle player who puts himself in the action when he's not directly involved. Knows how to use his height and vertical leap.
  • Trusts his eyes with very good awareness. Has very good reaction skills to break quickly on the ball.
Weaknesses
  • Too slow for a cornerback and average size and bulk for safety but has room to add strength to his frame.
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • Lacks instincts with shaky awareness, is overaggressive and too often bites on fakes and misdirection.
  • Needs to improve his footwork and balance in coverage. Transitions out of his backpedal too early and doesn't look natural moving in reverse.
  • Has suspect instincts in coverage and needs to show better pre snap recognition.
