Strong Points

Good height and excellent length (32 1/8-inch arms). Has experience in press, off and zone coverage. Two-year starter. Good athlete with some explosiveness. Has played in a lot of big games and been tested. Played some basketball at FSU in 2014. Instinctive and alert, will help out when free.

Weak Points

Added 10 pounds from Senior Bowl to Combine. Was it just water weight for the weigh-in? Looks to have a lean frame and does not play with strength. He will miss a lot of tackles because he lacks good upper body strength and doesn't wrap well. Ran slow. Average ball skills.

The Way We See It

Ran much slower than expected at the Combine. Florida State coaches thought that he would make a jump in his play in 2016 but instead leveled off. Has the height and length required along with some explosiveness but he lacks speed, bulk and strength. At this point, he is more of a late-round developmental guy who will need to spend some time on the practice squad. Flashes some good things but just not enough.
