At his best in tight areas where he gets his feet under him and routinely creates a snap through the hips into contact, getting his man on the ground. Creates turnovers as a tackler because of his pop, but would like to see him do a more consistent job wrapping up in space and be more than just a striker.
Falls off some tackles in space and doesn’t break down nearly as well in the open field, gets upright and can be side stepped/slipped. Isn’t real fluid when asked to open up his hips and run. Looks a bit tight, struggles to get back up to speed quickly and doesn’t create much of a burst initially out of his breaks. Straight-line speed is very average, looks like a 4.55-plus guy. Will make the move to linebacker as a senior.
Impression: A good in-the-box tackler who should really excel from a production standpoint this year playing closer to the line of scrimmage. Looks like a SS-only to me at the next level though who I view more as a free agent type prospect."
