Strengths
  • 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.
  • Gives effort between the tackles to find the ball and is willing to take on linemen.
  • Quick to read run, showing good agility and speed to get past blockers and finish. Experienced in coverage and gets a strong jam on outside receivers.
  • Gets his hands in the passing lanes. Effort is mere in coverage.
  • He has good reaction skills and awareness. Forceful tackler vs. the run.
Weaknesses
  • Chase speed is below average, and he gets too upright as a pass rusher - needs to play with better leverage.
  • High-cut and long-legged, and he does not have elite acceleration.
  • Attacks the line but needs work on stacking and shedding blocks.
  • Can be too hesitant when he doesn't find the ball immediately.
  • He'll add quality depth but must earn more than a backup/special teams role.

*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.
