However, plays with reckless abandon vs. the run game. Generates a good pop into contact, loves to fly downhill and will create some real collisions. However, more of a striker than tackler. Doesn't always see what he hits, will drop his head into contact and routinely in pursuit will fly past the football.
Showcases average range when asked to close, isn't a real flexible kid and has a tough time snapping at the hips into contact. Leads with his shoulder too often and generates his force by picking up speed. Needs to learn to use his hands better as well playing off blocks inside, his instincts are average and gets tied up inside too often.
Struggles to sit into his drop in coverage. Is leggy, bends at the waist and has a tough time keeping his base under him when closing on the football. Too often is forced to pop upright when asked to turn and run which really takes away from his ability to reach top end speed.
Also, routinely is forced to chop his feet in order to collect himself out of his breaks when trying to re-direct. Once he collects himself he exhibits a slight burst, but has only average straight-line speed for his size and gives up far too much separation initially trying to get out of his breaks.
Impression: A striker who will lay the wood when he makes contact. However, isn't a great wrap-up guy and is going to struggle in space at the next level."
Runs the alley and breaks on throws, though he shows only average speed, range and closing burst and is not a form tackler - generally launches or delivers a shoulder blow.
Plays free safety at Ole Miss but could find his way as a downhill strong safety and special-teams player.
Lack of speed might hurt him, and he could struggle to grasp complex NFL schemes."
