Evaluation

Has the size you look for in a big linebacker that can control the middle. An ideal inside linebacker who plays inside the box. More of a downhill player who plays with good speed going north-south. When he makes a tackle, he can knock the opponent back. Solid against the run. Plays until the whistle blows. Can improve lateral quickness and sideline to sideline speed. - Chad Simmons
