Scouting Report
Assets: An energetic and athletic big hitter. Uses explosive quickness and his good size to penetrate the line and get to ball-carriers all over the field. A very active bull-rusher. Simply makes big plays on a regular basis, thanks to constant hustle and great intensity.
Flaws: His foot-speed isn't elite. Maturity is a question mark, and rumors about character issues followed him coming out of college. Must show he can stay in peak condition year to year. Must keep improving his pass coverage in open space. A bit injury-prone.
Career Potential: Prolific tackling linebacker, when focused and healthy.
