Displays some explosion into contact, lowers his pad level, but isn't a consistent wrap-up guy and instead will bounce off ball carriers inside and looks content to simply throw himself at the legs of ball carriers.
Lacks great closing range in space, and has a tendency to see his angles outpaced in the open field. He isn't a two-stepper + struggles to get up to speed quickly out of his breaks + will take some bad angles in the open field.
Displays "plus" anticipation skills in the deep half, giving himself a chance to be around the football because he displays natural instincts, routinely working toward the action and getting early jumps on throws.
Exhibits average footwork and balance in and out of his breaks but he can be physical with receivers underneath, exhibiting a strong punch and some natural short area quickness to stay in their back pocket. However, there is no real second gear to his game when asked to close.
He plays at one speed, looks like a 4.6 guy and simply doesn't have the range to cover much ground in space as a center fielder. Plus, he has a tendency to get upright in his drop when asked to turn and run, causing him to lose a step out of his transition.
He just doesn't have any real explosive gear to his game when trying to get over the top and make a play on the football in space.
Is a willing special teams player who will create collisions on contact down the field.
Impression: He's undersized, lacks ideal range in space and isn't a dynamic wrap up tackler inside the box. He's going to have a tough time making a roster."
