Player Notes Pros

  • Does well to patiently wait out breaks, trusts his eyes when opposing QBs cock the arm

  • He's a really physical finisher and like his variance between wrap up & cut tackles

  • Sinks under layered throws & will do his best to squeeze & diminish throwing angles

  • His reactive quickness on poorly thrown balls or tipped passes is very effective

  • Shows good nose for the ball when playing through the hands of receivers/ball carriers

  • Possesses the high point skills to win consistently at the catch point with finesse

  • Effort should never be questioned, you can routinely watch him work off the back side

  • His ability to gear down & redirect as a tackler is excellent as well

  • He's plays very controlled thanks to his surprising quickness & dynamic base

  • Smart enough to work pro defense, best suited for shallow zones in sub-packages 

  • Has enough carry to work effectively as a coverage defender on special teams 

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • If you flood his coverage, he's going to get caught between a rock & a hard place

  • Does not possess the high enough burst to play over the deep middle

  • Savvy receivers & QBs will keep him on his heels and neutralize his impact

  • Lacks the wingspan & mobility to be effective at a consistent & high level

  • His zone drops in shallow spaces struggle to reach appropriate depth
