Strengths

High-twitch, well-muscled athlete with tapered waist and powerful trunk. Quick lateral slide from gap-to-gap mirroring running back. Speed to chase from sideline to sideline. Accelerates off his spot and into his target preferring to wrap up and drive hips through the tackle. Brings pop behind his pads. Trustworthy. Handles his run fits and isn?t looking to be a hero. Bouncy feet enable sudden change of direction. Willing to step into hole and deliver a blow to pulling guards or iso ­blocks. Has strength at point of attack to squeeze the edge against tight ends. Able to defend passes or pick them off in coverage. Special teams demon on cover teams. Maintained focus and team-­first attitude despite being unable to crack starting lineup until his senior season.

Weaknesses

Only one year of starting experience. Slightly undersized. Tightly bundled frame may leave little room for additional mass on his frame. Needs to be diligent with hands or he can be engulfed by second level maulers. Diagnoses well, but instincts inside the flow of play are a work in progress. Needs to improve consistency as a tackler. Not as downhill as he could be limiting his production on tackles for losses. Loses track of his coverage in space from time to time. Showed some signs of fatigue in fourth quarter against tempo-­based teams.
