Player Notes Pros

  • Playmaker in every aspect, recorded at least 3 INT's & 5 PD's in each collegiate season

  • Always making standout plays in coverage when he’s attacking the ball out of the air

  • Often winning the competition at the catch point, due to physicality & athleticism

  • Extremely intelligent prospect as both a run defender & when dropping in coverage

  • In two high safety defense, he’s outstanding at allowing QB's eyes to take him to the ball

  • Most interceptions have been direct result of him anticipating where the balls intended

  • Possesses a sharp trigger as a run defender very quick to run downhill & fill gaps

  • Burst is short spaces, when driving down hill into the teeth of the play is quite strong

  • Physically dominant tackler, ample build which translates well to taking down NFL WR's

  • Nose for the football shines when he's given the chance to hunt in the shallow spaces

  • As a nickel LB & SS he's rangy, to undercut the ball & attack with aggressive angles

  • Catch radius is notable & his strength to attack the ball through the hands is effective

  • He will certainly be an imposing presence in the middle of the field at the next level


Player Notes Cons


  • When  tasked with man to man coverage there were some serious questions marks

  • There’s a severe delay with his timing of knowing when to turn his hips and run 

  • Allowed targets to eat up cushion before opening up & running alongside them

  • He’s not a safety that can be counted on to consistently hold up in man coverage

  • Not necessarily going to succeed as a feature player in a single high safety role
