Strengths
  • Aggressive with good awareness to track the ball and attack. Tenacious, tough, competItIve and versatile.
  • Has fluid footwork to redirect, reverse momentum and close with a burst. Regularly first off the ball with good snap anticipation.
  • Good not great quickness and change of direction agility. Chases, using a long spin move to clear blocks. Low, strong off the line.
  • Relentless and strong off the edge as a pass rusher when fresh. Gets under the pads of tackles to bull rush them into the backfield.
  • Easily gains inside leverage by shooting gaps.
Weaknesses
  • Average athletically with average straight line speed and tight hips. Not a natural bender. Lacks secondary pass-rush moves.
  • Is slightly high-cut and stiff in the hips, likely too stiff for 3-4 outside linebacker consideration.
  • Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
  • Doesn't change direction easily. Can be late off the snap.
  • Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
