Strong Points

An instinctive playmaker. Has good size and strength for the position. Shows strength at the point to take on and shed blocks. Strong run defender. Gets off blocks and makes plays. Can get depth with his pass drop and has awareness in coverage. Very good tackler.

Weak Points

While he is instinctive, he lacks speed and top range. Has to get a jump on plays. Don't see range in coverage. Lacks the suddenness needed to play in man coverage.

The Way We See It

A fourth-year senior and a first-year starter. Really came on this year with 106 total tackles. Consummate overachiever who makes plays because of his outstanding awareness and instincts. He is strong and has a good feel for blockers. Can take on or slip a block. In coverage, he plays well in the short zones but he lacks the range and suddenness to play much man. Will be a very good backup with a chance to eventually start in the right situation.
