Atlanta Falcons Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 2 - Pick Number: 40 (ATL)
Strengths
  • Good strength to tackle. Plays with high energy and is a tough-minded overachiever.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Quicker than he is fast but has a burst to close in zone coverage and plays physical at the line in man.
Weaknesses
  • Takes poor angles on the ball and lacks the pure speed to chase down the ballcarrier.
  • Needs to tighten his angles in pursuit. Needs to show better tackling technique to consistently finish.
  • Has a cornerback body and needs to continue to get stronger to be more effective shedding blocks.
  • Has very inconsistent tackling technique and too often just throws himself at the lower body of the ballcarrier instead of wrapping up.
  • Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
