  • Finishes and doesn't quit; competitor with a positive attitude and leadership traits that coaches admire.
  • A smooth mover and covers a lot of ground, working hard to mirror rushers; agile and keeps his feet moving.
  • Good natural athleticism, knee bend and fluid lateral movement to mirror college defensive ends.

  • Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
