New York Giants Signed as an undrafted free agent by New York Giants
Strengths
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Aggressive with good awareness to track the ball and attack. Tenacious, tough, competItIve and versatile.
  • Coordinated with smooth movement skills. High-effort rusher and works through the whistle. Relentless worker, fighting off blocks and battling to the ball.
  • Excellent hustle-and-chase tackler. Good closing speed with change of direction to corral mobile quarterbacks.
  • Average quickness and power and his bull rush will be stonewalled. Comes off the snap high, losing leverage.
Weaknesses
  • Not a quick-twitch player. Won't consistently threaten the edge. Few explosive qualities and lacks great initial burst or overall range for the position.
  • Lacks the speed to turn the corner consistently and is too often washed out by stronghanded blockers.
  • Not overly flexible or loose. Limited, predictable pass-rush arsenal. Struggles to locate the ball at times and needs to do a better job with his read-and-react skills.
  • He doesn't have the elite quickness or flexibility to flatten off the edge against NFL blockers and might have to add bulk to be a 3-4 defense five-technique, or strong-side end in a 4-3.
  • Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
