“He is a fundamentally sound tackler with strong hands to hook, stay low and drop the ballcarrier, using leverage to wrap and finish.” –Dane Bruger, @dpbrugler (7/21/16)
A monster of a linebacker, he is impossible to move and has elite take on skills. Can stuff the holes in the middle of a defense, and is an exceptional tackler. Has some ability to drop into coverage, so shouldn’t become a one dimensional inside linebacker. Will need to work on recognition skills, but shows patience and awareness for the most part. If he finds the right suitor could move into day two.
