Isn’t a guy who can hold up when run at. However, knows how to make himself small when picking his way through traffic. Does a nice job avoiding blocks, breaks down well and tackles with good wrap and leverage. Displays a little pop on contact as well and is a consistent tackler inside.
Plays 100 miles per hour in space and is all over the field. However, lacks ideal balance when asked to break down, takes some really poor angles in pursuit and struggles to consistently tackle in space. Gets good depth off the line in zone coverage, demonstrating clean footwork, keeps his feet under him and base down.
But isn’t overly instinctive when asked to feel routes develop around him. Is clean when asked to redirect, but needs to see the throw before he closes. Will also take himself out of his fair share of plays keying on play fakes and just being too overaggressive at times.
Impression: Lacks the size/power to hold up inside at the next level. Looks like a free agent who will need to make his mark on special team and dramatically improve his instincts to mature into a potential nickel backer."
