Strong Points

An athletic and aggressive player who made a lot of plays on an average team (105 tackles) Adequate OLB size. Makes plays on effort. Strong player with strong hands. Shows some explosiveness. Good athlete with good play speed. Able to get good depth in coverage and shows good receiver awareness in zone.

Weak Points

Can be too aggressive at times and gets out of control, which can take him out of plays. While he shows he can play zone coverage, he is not as good in man. Lacks some niftiness in man coverage. Needs to improve his hand use so he can quickly shed on a more consistent basis.

The Way We See It

Not a player you hear a lot about, but the scoutng community knows who he is. A bit of a tweener in that he has marginal size to play OLB in a 3-4 scheme. His play says 3-4 OLB but his physical traits say ‘Will' in a 4-3. Still developing and not ready to be a starter but can be a quality backup and solid special teams contributor. Has upside and if he can get to 250-plus. it will help him with the 3-4 clubs.
