Analysis

Strengths

Good size with above-average straight-line speed. Technically proficient -- has enough toughness and will sacrifice his body. Dependable tackler. Enough range to make some plays on the ball and jump routes. Football is important to him and takes it very seriously. Makes the secondary calls and checks and understands coverages like a coach. Prepares like a pro. Tough, durable, solid producer. Reliable special teams contributor. High school punter capable of handling punts in emergency situations.

Weaknesses

Has small hands. Is stiff in the hips and plays a bit flat-footed. Is challenged by elite speed and lacks ideal size to match up against tight ends. Is not a big hitter. Does not possess the top-end speed to range to the sideline and make plays on the ball -- not a true center fielder. Average career production on the ball.

Bottom Line

More smart than instinctive, classic overachiever with enough size, straight-line speed and intelligence to function as a backup and special teams performer. Shows enough range to survive on the back end and toughness to interchange in the box. Can make a living on special teams.
