Strong Points

Has excellent size to go with good to real good athleticism. He is strong and a big-time hitter. Has very good range. Shows he can play in zone. Doesn't play much man but has the skills to easily cover a tight end or a back.

Weak Points

While he is a big-time hitter, he misses tackles because he gets out of control or doesn't wrap up. More of a reactor in coverage than instinctive, can be late seeing things.

The Way We See It

A talented kid who may have been better off had he stayed in school. Great size and athleticism but he lacks top instincts. He is more of a reactor type. Has the skill set to be good in man vs tight ends and running backs, we just don't see it that often. More of a developmental prospect and some teams might look at him as a hybrid linebacker with his growth potential, speed and athleticism. Play him down low and he can be a force because he will hit. While he is learning, he will be excellent on special teams.
