Positives … Has an athletic build with developing upper body muscle tone, firm midsection and hips and only 9.7 percent body fat … Sensational kick blocker who times his leaps and has a knack for finding the ball … Intelligent athlete who will rarely bust an assignment … Studies film and has no problems retaining plays … Has good straight-line speed and is better when playing in the box than in the deep zone … Shows a strong closing burst, getting a decent break on the ball … Has natural hands to catch and secure the ball … Active in run support, taking good angles in pursuit and will hit with authority … Will sacrifice his body to make the play.

Negatives … Does not have the timed speed or flexibility to handle man coverage, as receivers too often get him turned around and dictate the route progression … Spends more time chasing than covering in one-on-one situations … Can move in reverse, but shuffles his feet, causing him to look choppy trying to turn in transition … Struggles to find the ball with his back turned and can be beaten over the top … Looks hesitant in his initial charge and does not have the speed or range to handle two-deep coverage … Will pursue plays on the perimeter in run support, but when the action is inside, he looks passive and late to arrive, failing to use his arms well to disengage from blockers … Hard tackler, but ducks his head, causing runners to slip off some of his hits … Does not run as fast as his timed speed indicates.
