However, isn't real balanced in his drop. Struggles to sit into his stance and keep his base down, which forces him to consistently chop his feet and waste steps in order to regain his footing when asked to close. Doesn't trust himself down the field either, opens up his hips prematurely and easily allows receivers to snap off routes and separate in front off him.
Isn't real compact with his footwork or physical up near the line as well. Doesn't do a good enough job getting a bump on his man and is slow to redirect and lacks an ideal initial burst to stay with receivers out of his breaks. Gives up far too much separation off the line and lacks the great closing speed to make up for a false step.
Impression: Possesses some grit and toughness in the run game, but isn't a guy who I would trust in coverage at the next level."
Weaknesses: Statistically unimpressive. Not instinctive. Nagging injuries Might be useful only in special teams. Limited upside.
Projection: Currently not a top 255 projection. As an UDFA, he will get the chance to prove himself on special teams, and at most could be a nickel back."
