Analysis

Strengths

Flexible, loose-hipped athlete with fluid movement skills. Good closing speed. Is agile and athletic enough to match up with tight ends, backs and even some slot receivers. Can buzz the flat and deter throws with closing speed. Shows good zone awareness moving forward and will deliver some jarring hits to intimidate crossers. Solid press-cover skills. Times the blitz well. Has all the athletic tools to become a solid special-teams contributor.

Weaknesses

Just a two-year starter and instincts are still developing -- does not trigger quickly to what he sees and could take some time to assimilate a complex playbook. Lacks throwback linebacker toughness and functional playing strength. Often gets locked down once blockers get their hands on him. Can do a better job shedding blocks. Plays a bit recklessly and could do a better job wrapping up as a tackler. Was not an impactful special-teams performer.

Bottom Line

A run-and-chase, strong-side linebacker with speed that could easily be utilized on the weak side or allow him to develop as a nickel-cover linebacker. Does not possess ideal toughness or instincts for special teams. Canadian-born prospect could be most highly coveted by the CFL.
