As a nickel he shows toughness to take on a block using his hands well to stun and shed. Has blitz skill with quickness at the snap. Good hustle in pursuit. Does not give up on the play. Missed a tackle in space then chased the player down from behind. Tackling skill is positive with power and knee bend. Has to maintain inside leverage or he is vulnerable to a missed tackle.
