Strengths
  • Challenges inside with quickness and strong hands. Run-and-chase defender who can leave a mark.
  • Aggressive with good awareness to track the ball and attack. Tenacious, tough, competItIve and versatile.
  • High-effort, thickly built defender with good strength and the leverage to create a pile. Locates_ the ball quickly and pursues with passion, showing_ good lateral agility while extending the play to the sideline.
  • Has fluid footwork to redirect, reverse momentum and close with a burst. Regularly first off the ball with good snap anticipation.
  • Easily gains inside leverage by shooting gaps.
Weaknesses
  • Doesn't change direction easily. Can be late off the snap.
  • Never out of a play, but can get out of control and work himself away from the action.
  • Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
  • Lacks overpowering strength and can stick to blocks. Lacks explosive speed to bend and flatten off the corner with stiff hips and ankles. Not flexible or fluid.
  • Plays tall, lacks athleticism to break down against elusive ballcarriers.
