Analysis

Strengths

Motor runs hot -- supports the run aggressively and pursues urgently. Plays bigger than his size and throws his weight around -- pounces on ball carriers. Good zone awareness. Makes plays on the ball and has good hands to make athletic interceptions. Physical and competitive. Made secondary calls and is football smart. Has special-teams experience. Tough, durable three-year starter.

Weaknesses

Lacks ideal size and needs to get stronger. Can be a tick late to diagnose and lacks burst to recover. Average explosiveness, speed and range. Has man-coverage limitations -- struggles to keep up with speedy slot receivers. Lives and dies with aggressiveness -- fails to make tackles in space when he misses the kill shot or doesn’t arrive under control.

Bottom Line

Physical, aggressive strong safety at his best playing downhill and filling in run defense, though you wish he had more juice athletically. Special teams will have to be his ticket.
