Scouting Report
Hard-hustling and productive. Very aggressive, and a take-charge type who plays until the whistle goes. Will make plays in pass coverage. Has solid physical tools, with enough speed and a big enough frame to play in several roles. Hasn't shown a true position yet in the linebacker corps. Hasn't developed the pass-rushing ability as a pro that he showed in the college ranks. Not terribly fluid, and needs to put on muscle mass.
Long Range Potential: All-round quality linebacker with positional versatility.
