Strengths
  • Extremely aggressive to come up and put his body in traffic to make tackles.
  • Savvy cover skills to recognize and anticipate routes. Understands what's coming and has good ball skills.
  • Best fit is in a zone scheme considering he lacks the vertical speed to shadow elite receivers.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Alert defender for zone coverage, showing good understanding of route progressions occurring behind him and a quick burst downhill to break on underneath passes in front of him.
Weaknesses
  • Vulnerable to big plays trying to bait the quarterback.
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
  • Needs work on backpedaling to prevent defenders from getting behind him.
  • Has suspect instincts in coverage and needs to show better pre snap recognition.
