Pros: Jonathan brings determination and grit to the LB position. In the run game, he is good at the point of attack. Shows moments of hustle on the backside as a chase player. Has some pop in his hands but needs to improve his technique. Particularly with using his hands to stack/shed in the run game. In the passing game he isn’t dynamic. However, he has generated some production with hustle and perseverance. Has some bend on the edge and when he becomes more consistent in his technique he is a candidate to increase his production. He can rush from an up or down position on 3rd down. He will also be a core special teamer if necessary in the NFL.
Cons: Doesn't have great “get off” but has developed the emotional endurance and persistence to generate production. He doesn't always play with length on the edge. Not a dynamic rusher by any stretch, in terms of his explosion and agility. He's a little more explosive as a rusher from a down position. Not a refined technician on the edge. His production could increase with better usage of his hands. Has some power in his hips but needs to learn to maximize it by playing with good leverage.
