However, lacks a great feel for the run game at this stage as a backer, has a tendency to overrun the play and takes his fair share of false steps. But, to his credit, displays good fluidity when asked to open up his hips and re-direct. Chops his feet in order to collect himself and just seems to be going 100 miles per hours too often with no real idea of where the ball is going.
Nevertheless, he makes his mistakes at full speed, works hard to get himself back into the play and uses his length well to wrap and breakdown on ball carriers. Is developing a feel in the pass game as well. Again displays above average fluidity, burst and closing speed in zone coverage.
But struggles to feel routes develop around him and doesn’t read and react quickly to the quarterback at this stage. Gets caught staring down the QB too often, stops moving his feet and is slow to decipher info. Put himself around the action quickly because of his athleticism, but is a very reactive player at this stage and not real proactive.
Impression: Needs more experience, but there is some talent to work with. Isn’t a draftbale guy at this stage, but might be an interesting “athlete free agent” to take a shot on who should be able to fight for a spot on special teams."
