Strengths
  • Good speed in pursuit with the chase skills to track down the ballcarrier.
  • Aware in the red zone, stays on the back line to take away fade throws. Capable of making quarterbacks pay for late throws.
  • Good hustle player who puts himself in the action when he's not directly involved. Knows how to use his height and vertical leap.
  • Gives up his body in run support with a very good closing burst.
  • Physical, sheds defenders and works off blocks. Good toughness with recognition skills to fight through traffic and blow up screens.
Weaknesses
  • Hits too high and loses leverage, allowing ballcarriers to pick up extra yards. Plays overaggressive misses tackles in space and overruns plays.
  • Lacks elite speed to recover if beaten on double move. Ducks his head and swipes too often on open-field tackles.
  • Has only average long speed and body flexibility.
  • Opens his hips too early and allows himself to get turned around in coverage.
  • Willing but not threatening tackler. Doesn't have the quick-twitch reaction when he gears down to rebuild to top speed. More instinctive than explosive.
