Strengths

Excellent size. Good straight-line speed. Bends his knees and pedals softly. Reacts well to plays in front of him. Played a hybrid safety role at UW, including defending slot receivers (even played CB in a pinch against BYU). Special-teams experience. Coach's son.

Weaknesses

Average flexibility and range. Still developing positional instincts and diagnostic skills. Man-coverage limitations -- dull transitional quickness and closing burst. Ordinary production on the ball -- not a playmaker. Does not punish or intimidate. Reliability should be looked into.
