Strong Points

Had an outstanding Pro Day following an average Combine. Ran 4.71 at Indy and 4.53 at his Pro Day. Has good instincts and reacts quickly to both pass and run. Is a good coverage linebacker, showing awareness and has some man ability.

Weak Points

Small to play linebacker and does not play with good strength. Can get overpowered at the point and be slow to shed. Doesn't like to take on, would rather elude blocks. Not the most physical guy on the field.

The Way We See It

The time he ran at the UCLA Pro Day will get him a lot of attention. Was 231 and ran 4.7 at Indy then comes back at 226 and runs 4.53. He is not a top run support player but he has coverage skills. With that in mind, he may be a good nickel package linebacker and special teams player. Has to get a little bigger and play with more strength in order to have a chance.
