Four-year starter awarded All-Conference
honors in the past. Finished his
senior season with 93 tackles, 31 tackles for loss and 13 sacks over the course
of a 15 game schedule. Junior
totals were 57/19/8, after 86/17/8 the prior year.
Intercepted a total of 5 passes in college.
Explosive linebacker best moving up the field.
Aggressive and always working to get involved in the action yet at the
same time disciplined and plays assignment football.
Moves well laterally, strong at the point of attack and brings down ball
carriers on initial contact. Gets
adequate depth on pass drops and displays decent range on the field.
Lacks top instincts and anticipation, has some
hesitation to his game and struggles when the ball is in the air.
Slow shedding blocks and does doesn't always redirect to the action.
Analysis: Good size/speed numbers for a weak side linebacker or even safety but deficient in pass defense, which will hamper him at the next level.
