Former safety who is making the transition to linebacker and played very well there as a junior. Good straight line speed and does well as a blitzer because he plays at full speed consistently. He is a good in coverage as well. The main thing for him is keep getting stronger and continue to work on taking on blocks and shedding. He's not 6'3-6'4 but has added good muscle and weight and needs to keep doing so. - Allen Trieu
