SCOUTING REPORT
Strengths:

Smart linebacker with a high football IQ. He has a thick frame and explosiveness to make tackles from sideline-to-sideline. A decent athlete with good speed. Great awareness in pass coverage. Reacts fast and drops into his zone effortlessly. He can cover tight ends or backs out of the backfield. Versatile enough to be a three-down back for a team. Fits best as a WILL linebacker in a 43 defense.

Weaknesses:

Plays stiff and might need to lose some weight. He needs to get more flexible and balanced. Misses to many tackles and struggles to shed blocks. He wasn't asked to blitz much in college.
