PROS: Has ideal size from the inside linebacker position. Runs well for his size and has good, natural instincts at the linebacker position. High hustler player that wraps up when he tackles and doesn’t miss many tackles. Has good quickness along the line of scrimmage and can shoot past offensive lineman when hitting his gaps.
CONS: Not a great athlete and appears stiff in coverage. Won’t really be successful dropping into a deep zone in some schemes and doesn’t look natural doing so. Gets cut far too often and will play too high. Despite six sacks in his final season doesn’t really have a large array of pass rushing moves.
