Player Notes Pros

  • Possesses great short area burst & plenty of upper body strength to wrap up and finish

  • He will bring his feet through contact & finish tackles effectively & efficiently

  • Quality reps both stacking blocks with his hands & plugging up gaps with hips pads

  • Effort is strong, appreciate his linear burst & flow to try to rally to the football

  • His functional strength is excellent & he's got some short area coil to him

  • Dynamic athleticism in open space to lengthen himself & challenge the ball in the air

  • Likes to attack, play forward & make splash plays with his adequate vision

  • Backfield production isan area he contributes nicely putting in a lot of work

  • Great in lateral scenarios or in zone drops to adequately get depth off the LOS

  • Nice hip/pad level in stance, excellent with keeping his center of gravity low

  • Incredible ability to redirect & change directions with suddenness & quickness

  • If asked to trigger down hill or in a straight line, actually gets pretty solid results

  • He's got some spring & can open up his strides to eat up turf in a hurry

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Slow processor doesn't anticipate gaps to shoot or quickly transition into scrape & drops

  • He's often caught flowing away from the ball and is late to redirect himself.

  • Lacks confidence in space to carry routes, doesn't illustrate desirable peripheral vision

  • His lateral mobility isn't great to pull off & disengage from offensive lineman 

  • He's not fluid enough to consistently peel off of blockers and uncover in the hole

  • Flat footed he really struggles to build up speed, struggles seeing plays develop
