Grade
4.8 ?

Draft Analysis:

  • 6'3" Height
  • 245LBS. Weight

Analysis

Strengths

Plays with consistent toughness at the point of attack. Will fight through impediments to get to the ball. Gap responsible. Steady tackler when he gets his shot.

Weaknesses

Lacks NFL athleticism. Struggles to protect against cut blocks and stay on his feet. Marginal instincts and looks lost at times against spread attacks. Cannot stay with running backs out of the backfield and is below average in pass coverage in general. Too slow to track outside runs and plays with poor angles.

Draft Projection

Undrafted

Bottom Line

Not instinctive or athletic. Can't hang his hat on coverage ability or run-stuffing acumen. He's an inside linebacker with limited range who must prove he can be a special-teams monster to make it.
