Analysis

Strengths

Secure tackler. Can drop adequately into short zone. Has a special-teams mentality. Team captain and three-year starter with solid personal and football character. Smart, hardworking and competitive.

Weaknesses

Needs to improve functional strength. Does not play with pop or power in his hands and gets stuck on blocks. Not a striker. Takes false steps. Average play speed. Tight hips. Doesn't play downhill. Struggles to keep pace with athletic tight ends.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Productive college linebacker lacking special traits for the pro game. Showed gradual improvement and will have to make his mark on special teams to survive.
