Positives: Nice size, speed and physicality. Good route recognition and instincts. Strong, fundamentally sound tackler. Provides solid run support. Diagnoses well and flies to the football. Plays off and works through blockers to get to the ball-carrier. Tough competitor. Should contribute on special teams.

Negatives: Lacks elite, quick-twitch suddenness and pure speed.

Summary: Should make a team and be a factor on special teams while he develops. Has the tools to become an eventual starter in the NFL.
