Notes: From Miami, FL. Played in all 13 games on special teams and as backup linebacker with 1 start, totaled 13 tackles, 1 tackle-for-loss, 1 pass breakup and 1 fumbled recovery in 2016.

Played in all 13 games and started 11 at linebacker, recorded 93 tackles, 9 TFL, 4 sacks, 5 PBU and 1 fumble recovery in 2018.

Positives: Exceptional athlete. Very quick, fast and agile. Gets off blocks and flies to the ball. Very good instincts and radar. Diagnoses quickly and is very decisive to the football. Eludes and sheds blocks well. Sifts through the wash extremely well. Converts speed into power and is a physical hitter. Outstanding range and pursuit. Explosive blitzer, both inside and off the edge. Fantastic closing speed. Can run with backs in coverage. Very good open-field tackler.

Negatives: Modest frame and natural size. Needs continued strength development. Is not great at taking on blockers at the point of attack. Needs to play off the ball.

Summary: Excellent inside/weak-side linebacker prospect. Undersized, but moves like a safety and can make impact plays in all phases. Should start early and is a three-down player.
