PROS: Excellent initial penetration. Get off and first step are full of burst. Gets into the backfield quickly on passing downs, and his leverage allows him to blow up running backs or tight ends. Has solid hips, can bend and corner. Above average counters, has a good rip and spin move. Shoots gaps well on stunts and gets after the QB with his speed. Gets into pass drops well and actively scans. Versatile, played a variety of role for he Longhorns defense. High effort player.
CONS: Too aggressive against the run and consistently gets caught flying beyond the line of scrimmage and opening unnecessary gaps. Limited in his anchor and holding his ground in the hole. Can put his head down and struggle to read the backfield against the run. Taken off the field because of his struggles against the run. Only a slightly above average athlete for a force player.
