Strengths

Hybrid linebacker with phenomenal overall athleticism. Sideline-to-sideline speed. Top-tier movement skills for the position. Elite quickness. Tremendous burst/acceleration. Twitchy and explosive. Offers positional versatility. Excellent instincts and reaction time. Standout aggressiveness. Plays with reckless abandon. Throws his body around. Sees the field well and bullets to the action. Darts through traffic to make a play. Huge hitter for his size. Lights people up. Physical taking on blockers in space. All-around playmaker. Looks to force turnovers. Has experience lining up all over the place as a rover. Exceptional in coverage. Able to defend the slot at a high level. Very good awareness as a zone defender. Great timing/accuracy to attack the ball for pass breakups and strips. Shoots gaps in a flash as a blitzer. Plays extremely hard and hustles to the ball. Has the skillset to erase tight ends or be a quarterback spy. Can have success on the edge thanks to combination of burst/bend/effort.

 

Weaknesses

Will miss some tackles by coming in too aggressive. Very quick to breakdown in space but needs to do it more. Concerns about aggressiveness versus play-action and misdirection. On the smaller side overall for a linebacker. Can get absorbed inside (Alabama playoff game). Could be labeled a “tweener” if he lands with the wrong team.
