Scouting Report
Assets: A true tackling machine. Has a rare knack for reading plays as they unfold and is explosive getting off blocks and getting to the ball-carriers. Possesses the size and athleticism to handle most blockers and the speed and versatility to play several linebacker spots.
Flaws: Lacks elite explosiveness and agility. Isn't a natural pass rusher and needs to prove he can pressure quarterbacks on a constant basis and stay with bigger, faster players in pass coverage (as he's not a natural defender man-to-man).
Career Potential: Pro Bowl, thumping middle linebacker.
