“Plays the game with edge and embraces physical requirement of the position. First responder who races downhill into the action. Rarely taps the brakes into his tackles.” –Lance Zierlein
Excellent, tackling, and reactive safety that can cover the deep field as well. Instinctively finds the ball or the ball carrier and gets to it with ferocity and willingness. Great length allows him to fight for the ball, and locates the ball in the air well. Major issues with discipline, and that is why he is dropping, as he has had multiple positive drug tests. Teams will need to do their homework on him before taking a chance on him in the mid rounds.
