Showcases the ability to change directions in coverage with some effectiveness, but lacks the range/burst to limit his initial separation in man coverage. Possesses a solid feel in zone, but isn't overly proactive.
Isn't the most consistent of tacklers. To his credit does do a nice job extending his arms into contact and can shed on the perimeter. But again doesn't have the kind of initial burst to accelerate quickly toward his target and tackle off his frame. Does use his hands well however when lead blocks can get into his legs and is routinely cut down.
Isn't a real sound wrap-up tackler. Struggles to breakdown and takes poor angles into contact. Has a tough time settling his feet and too often overruns the play and/or will whiff into contact. Lacks idea length to wrap and sees far too many of his tackles slipped/broken to be a consistent threat in the NFL inside the box.
Displays above-average instincts inside, but again even when he put himself behind the line in position to make a play he typically fails to bring his man to the ground.
Impression: He is a bit inconsistent as a tackler, but he made some plays this year and could end up fighting for a roster spot. I wasn't overly impressed with his game however."
