Three-year starter who is experienced in special teams’ coverage units. Has a thick strong safety build with long arms. Plays square like a linebacker within five yards of the line of scrimmage. Has the physical ability to stay on his feet and play off blockers. A full contact player with a nose for the ball. A heavy hitter who is aggressive and active in his play. Gets downhill quickly to fill running lanes and force the point quickly. Well schooled in disguising coverage. If he takes a bad angle he has the ability to recover and a closing burst to make the play. Does a good job communicating coverage in the secondary. Animated and active getting players lined up.
