Scouting Report
A high-motor thumper in the middle of the field. Always buzzing around the ball, making plays sideline-to-sideline. Very well-rounded: a prolific tackler yet he's also excellent in pass coverage (with a knack for pickoffs) and is good on the pass-rush. Athletic, intense, and highly instinctive. Not ideally-sized and may be less effective in certain NFL setups and schemes. Doesn't manhandle blockers and depends more on his speed, athleticism, and guile. Can get a bit over-aggressive at times and overrun some plays.
Long Range Potential: Playmaking inside linebacker with star tools.
