Player Notes Pros

  • A machine playing forward, confidently drives on the football & makes physical plays

  • Incredible positional versatility with upside in both man & zone coverage 

  • Strong mirroring skills from the slot, length really shows up when closing on the ball

  • Checks all the boxes with ball skills, sound securing takeaways & disrupting catch point

  • Always punching & raking at the football to try and separate it from the ball carrier

  • Showcases good range to cover ground & close down distances very quickly

  • Proven to be an incredibly effective blitzer with good timing, physicality & effort

  • Very intelligent player who processes quickly & always finds himself around the football

  • Hitting power & contact balance are excellent, great ability to navigate tight quarters 

  • Quick feet, smooth & athletic for his size, can lineup anywhere in the back seven

  • Does a good job identifying his run fit then eagerly comes up in the run game

  • He demonstrates a sufficient amount of coverage upside while aligned in the slot

  • Good job as a single high safety of getting off his spot & getting to the ball on a 9 route

  • 3rd down his skill set suits him best playing as the Money LB in sub packages

  • Utilizes his instincts in the run game, great ability closer to the line of scrimmage

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Loose with zone coverage spacing, needs to be more consistent trusting his landmarks

  • Inconsistent as a tackler, needs to improve overall tackling efficiency on the back end

  • Processes a bit slow and it takes him a bit to diagnose where the ball carrier is

  • Versatility almost a negative as he is good at many things but great at very few
