Overview

Positives … Has a tall, muscular frame with long arms and good balance and agility … Is the type that will throw his body around and hit with force to make the play … Smooth in his backpedal and does not take extra steps coming out of his breaks … Adequate to break down and diagnose plays … Makes up for a lack of top-end speed by taking proper angles in pursuit … Shows decent plant and drive agility … Shows the strength and desire to come up and support vs. the run … Shows adequate body control working in space.

Negatives … More like a "looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane type" … Has provided marginal production and fails to wrest a starting job as a senior … Lacks the speed to be effective in deep routes and will bite on play action … Needs to do a better job of timing his leaps going up for the ball … Will hit with force, but tends to duck his head before contact, causing some backs to slip off his tackles … Throws his body around, but is more of a grab-&-drag down type than a classic wrap tackler … Might be better suited as a Cover-2 linebacker if he can carry the additional bulk with no loss in speed.
