    PROS: Extremely high effort player, hard pursuit who works as hard as anyone on the field. Good blitzer in space, closes pocket well. Pretty good lateral movement necessary for the linebacker position. Can side step potential blockers to avoid and continue attacking ball carrier. Aware player who can finish blitzes and play in space. Can block destruct and shed.

    CONS: Needs to shed blocks in a more immediate way, and can be slower to react. Has a tough time sifting through the trash in pursuit. Doesn't attack the line of scrimmage and plus gaps very well. Can take questionable paths to the ball. Will get stoned in pass rush and doesn't have any counters. Can be too patient before reacting.
