6002, 225, 4.56

Notes: From Ocala, FL. Played mostly on special teams as a true freshman in 2015; had 11 tackles and a blocked kick. Starter at WLB in 2016; led team with 122 tackles, 11.5 TFL, 4 sacks, 3 PBU, 2 FF. Posted 141 tackles, 9.5 TFL, 5 sacks, 4 PBU, 1 FR, 3 INT in 2017.

Positives: Outstanding productivity and range. Excels in pursuit. Very agile and athletic. Can often avoid and out-quick blockers in space. Good movement and change-of-direction skills. Able to run with backs in coverage. Closes quickly. Good skill set for special teams.

Negatives: Undersized. Struggles to take on and shed blockers at the point of attack. Gets bounced around and easily washed out at times. Tends to bite on play action, leaving passing lanes open behind him.

Summary: Weak-side linebacker prospect who needs to play off the ball and excel on special teams to make it.
