Strengths: Nice blend of height and length with big hands. Good leaping ability with the playing speed and range to cover a large area. Plays decisive and aggressive, wasting little time in his movements. Violent hitter with willingness to throw his body around. Fearless and tough-minded with a special teams mentality. Made most of his opportunity to start as a senior.

Weaknesses: Plays a tad stiff and lacks the ankle flexibility to quickly change directions. Strength is average at-best and is an inconsistent tackler, hitting and hugging instead of wrapping and finishing. Plays too high and isn't a natural bender. Has a tough time getting off blocks and needs to do a better job avoiding blockers when attacking the line of scrimmage. Needs to do a better job diagnosing the play and sniffing out the action, flashing very raw instincts. Limited experience as a one-year starter (13 starts in 2011) and was more of a special teams ace as an underclassman.
