Curry is an athletic, physical linebacker who makes plays all over the field. He's aggressive at the line of scrimmage and is a force against the run. He uses his hands effectively, sheds blocks and creates havoc in the backfield. He has a good burst and is excellent in pursuit. He displays good lateral movement; a little stiff in the hips, but gets good depth on his drops.
