Player Notes Pros

  • Possesses arms that are like vines allowing him to play through receivers

  • Arm extensions smothers throwing windows & makes it hard to fit balls in consistently

  • Embraces the physicality portion of the position, takes pride in being a run defender 

  • Consistent with maneuvering through traffic & still managing to make tackles 

  • Plenty of value as a blitzer, often used on CAT blitzes and late down edge pressures

  • Can attack the ball out of the air, while also capable of scooping it off of his shoe laces

  • He displays very good reactive athleticism & short area agility in coverage 

  • Shows good closing quickness as a blitzer off the edge, willing tackler in the run game  

  • Good feet & loose hips allow him to easily mirror wide receivers in a man coverage 

  • Very good transition at the top of the route, closing quickness to get to the break point 

  • Displays good vertical speed on 9 routes and good ball skills when he arrives 

  • Easily passes off routes in zone, displays competitiveness that's essential for the position

  • Terrific athlete with exceptional recovery speed which increases his margin for error

  • Illustrates good patience in press & stays square while doing a good job of leveraging

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Relies on collisions to delay route timing & knock targets off their intended track 

  • Plays high, his eyes often get caught looking back at the quarterback prematurely

  • Lack of strength & mass within his body shows up in certain parts of his game

  • Physical WR's often have their way with him during route stems & running plays

  • He has shown the propensity to duck his head and miss tackles against the run

  • When in press, he needs to do a better job of giving receivers different looks

  • Can get a little grabby down the field, which may result in P.I. calls at the next level
