Spikes has an outstanding combination of size, strength and toughness for the inside linebacker position. Is a highly-competitive performer who was the heart and soul of his Florida defense. Highly- productive player who earned All-American status. Displays impressive athleticism in multiple facets including in coverage where he?s a playmaker. Supremely instinctive reactor who is extremely quick to diagnose plays and find the football. Has been very durable.
Can be overly emotional at times. Spikes only possesses average long- speed which limits his range against the run and ability to play in man coverage, Only has average change of direction in space and can be beaten by counter plays. Flashes the ability to effectively blitz but has not been very productive yet in this area.
