Scouting Report
Is a very good tackler, so he is a big asset in stopping the run. Can also play in the slot to cover tight ends and some slot receivers, which shows his athleticism and overall ability. At times, he is used on blitzes as well. Lacks optimum height (5'10"), so taller receivers can give him trouble, but he has the bulk to handle them physically. Is a well-rounded safety.
Long Range Potential: Quality safety.
