Exhibits decent instincts when asked to find the football and make his way toward the play, just lacks the range to get there. Struggles to even reach perimeter runs on his side of the field and seems to really lumber in pursuit. Doesn't generate much power on contact when asked to take on blocks, even when attacking downhill. Gets too upright into contact, allows blockers to get under his frame and is easily jolted backward and/or knocked off balance at the point. Also, lacks the body control, power and range to cleanly disengage and make a play on the football.
Impression: His frame says 3-4 OLB, but he isn't explosive or sudden in any area of the game and simply plays too high to be physical on contact. Lacks the skill set to be an NFL player as a linebacker, but does have experience long snapping which could give him a chance."
