Pros: He aligns as an edge defender in the Crimson tide hybrid scheme. In the passing game, his production has superseded his skill set. Shows very good strength and pop in his hands to disengage and close on the QB. In the run game he is heavy at the point of attack. Has very good hand placement and is very difficult to move vertically. He's stronger and more powerful than he is explosive. As a result some of his movements are slow twitch. On 3rd down his skill set would be maximized by rushing him only from a 3 point stance. His skill set doesn't project well as a core special teamer and this player would struggle in space at the next level.
Cons: He's late off the ball and lacks the fast twitch to be an elite LB at the next level. Not dynamic athlete by any stretch and will struggle to do the diverse things an elite EDGE defender doesn't in the NFL. His effort is inconsistent. He also has some stiffness in his hips and may struggle as a tackler in the open field. Lacks good lateral agility and closing quickness to get to the QB.
