Scouting Report
Assets: A hard worker with excellent technique and a great heart. Can get into the backfield to make some plays. Plays hard until the whistle. Underrated tackler. A solid leader and team player.
Flaws: Doesn't have top-tier speed or size. Needs to be in the right system to succeed. Could improve his technique as a long snapper. Doesn't stand out in any particular area.
Career Potential: Very capable linebacker with upside.
