Positives: Smaller than scouts would prefer, but has a compact athletic build. ... Reads his keys and generally diagnoses the play quickly. ... Attacks the line of scrimmage versus the run, showing the closing speed to make tackles behind the line of scrimmage. ... Good agility to avoid blocks and shows good pop with his hands to disengage. ... Rare straight-line speed. ... Flexible athlete who can change directions in coverage and break down in space to make the tackle. ... Generally a reliable tackler who flashes explosiveness in his hitting. Negatives: Lacks the size scouts prefer at the position. ... Lacks upper body strength to take on blockers and can be pushed back if engaged properly. ... Relies too much on his agility to avoid blocks. ... Will duck his head to generate the big hit and slide off tackles at times, rather than wrapping up securely. ... Over-aggressive attacking the line of scrimmage, and can be beaten by good play-action.
