Strength: Good athlete. Slides well down LOS. Will wrap- can use quicks to avoid goal reads of QBs in zone. Gets depth in pass. Fluid in drops. Has quickness shoot to gap will chase. Has speed to get sideline to sideline. Has some burst. Good break on ball. Good feet. Quick to read screen. Get in chase from OLB backside. Shows strength. Can cover TE. Very good in coverage. Can run.
Weakness: Can’t cover slot WR. Not explosive taking on. Trouble with big OL. Will get bounced around inside. No hand strike taking on. Will lunge and miss some tackles. Not good thru traffic-plays small inside. Some trouble tackling in space. Plays tall inside. Misses a lot of tackles. Doesn’t play strong. Doesn’t break down well in space. Missed 6 tackles vs Fla. Doesn’t bend knees to tackle-not a knock back tackler. Doesn’t take on a square. Will take some plays off. Likes to jump around blocks.
Summary: This kid plays a boy ss inside. He doesn’t take on well, jumps and he misses way too many tackles by not breaking drops. Does a good job in pass coverage. He must play OLB where he doesn’t have to be so physical. He will take play off. I’m not crazy about him. He’s very smart make the calls. If you want coverage LB very good value.
