Scouting Report
Assets: A consummate playmaker. Has an uncanny knack for reading plays and brings tremendous range. Has great instincts for picking off passes. Hits like a truck. Can line up equally well in the box or in center field.
Flaws: Increasingly injury-prone due to his all-out, give-it-all style of play. Is so high-motor and aggressive, he sometimes commits too early or over-tries for the big hit, causing him to miss the occasional routine tackle.
Career Potential: Perennial Pro Bowler.
