Tough between-the-tackles defender who shimmies past blockers to fill lanes. Downhill, aggressive run-stuffer with enough strength to stop ballcarriers in the hole.
He has good reaction skills and awareness. Forceful tackler vs. the run.
He does not have the elite straight-line speed or quickness, but his strength and pass-rush ability.
Brings down quarterbacks much bigger than he is. Very good motor and regularly chases down plays from behind.
Spends a lot of time outside the box in coverage, but he has the strength to hold the edge against large tight ends and linemen.
One-speed player, lacking dynamic qualities and doesn’t look natural in reverse. Lacks the fluidity to be consistent dropping against the pass with unpolished cover skills.
Can be too hesitant when he doesn’t find the ball immediately.
High-cut and long-legged, and he does not have elite acceleration.
Hits up high and misses more tackles than he should.
Not a sudden or quick-twitch athlete. Will never be the strongest player on the field and can struggle to shed from different angles.
