Height: 6-0

Weight: 240lbs

PROS: Typical high motor player. Does a nice job dropping back into zone coverage and following the quarterbacks eyes. Smart player who keeps his assignments and holds his gaps. Wraps up well and takes good angles in pursuit, doesn’t often miss tackles. Changes direction and scrapes down the line well. Very good athlete for his size and a natural leader on the field.

CONS: Struggles in man to man coverage and can get fooled by play action fakes and misdirection. Has struggled through a lot of minor nagging injuries and hasn’t been very durable. Can get engulfed at the line of scrimmage and isn’t really a powerful tackler.  Doesn’t have great burst for rushing the passer and lacks pass rushing moves. Despite being adept in zone coverage, may be limited as a two down linebacker and come off the field on third downs or long passing situations.
