Draft Analysis:

"He's a WILL linebacker in a 3-4 defense. He can run, and he's more stout than people think because he kind of has that safety build." -- Mike Mayock

  • 6'1" Height
  • 33 3/8" Arm Length
  • 237LBS. Weight
  • 10 3/8" Hands

Overview

Louisiana native. Redshirted in 2009. Was a backup Will linebacker and special-teams contributor his first two years. Played 12 games in '10 (started the season opener against North Carolina as an injury replacement for Ryan Baker) and recorded 18 tackles, one-half for loss and zero sacks. Did not play against Tennessee. Played 13 games in '11 (started against Northwestern State when Baker was suspended) and tallied 17-1-0. Did not play against Tennessee. Started all 13 games at Will in '12, posting 104-7.5-0 with five pass breakups and a forced fumble. Was the leading tackler in '13 when he notched 91-5.5-1.5 with two pass breakups. Team captain wore jersey No. 57 prior to his senior season when he was elected to wear No. 18, signifying the player who bests represents what it means to be a Tiger.

Analysis

Strengths

Knee bender. Uses his arms like flippers to ward off blocks on the move. Athletic and agile. Moves well laterally. Can redirect and chase. Drops easily into zone coverage and shows hip swivel and range. Tough and football smart. Highly respected and hardworking team captain. Has special-teams experience and traits. Posted a 35-inch vertical leap and 10-foot, 3-inch broad jump at the combine.

Weaknesses

Small-framed -- is short and lacks ideal bulk. Lacks elite speed for his size. Average eyes and instincts. Gives ground at the point of attack. Does not play downhill or make enough plays at/behind the line -- too much production is downfield. Leaves production on the field -- in position but does not finish. Overruns plays (loses contain). Sucked in by playaction. Not a striker.

Draft Projection

Rounds 4-5

Bottom Line

Undersized, athletic, run-around see-and-go reactor who needs to be protected to be effective. Projects as a Will linebacker, nickel defender and special-teams contributor.
