Has the desired frame of an NFL inside linebacker. To go with that he’s instinctive against the run and has the twitch and athleticism needed to excel. Shows quick downhill reactions and can take an open window and make plays in the backfield. Uses his hands to ward off blocks on the move and his lateral agility allows him to make plays all along the line. Has perimeter to perimeter range in pursuit. Excellent zone defender he can re-route and run the seam along with flipping his hips to find the throwing lane. Can stay with inside receivers up the field. Inconsistent taking on blocks he will have to develop in that area. He will occasionally miss tackles by leaving his feet.
Declared for the 2024 NFL Draft. (1/12/24)
