Scouting Report
Assets: Ideal size for a nose tackle. A talented and quick defender with phsyical gifts that enable him to smash through the line and get into the backfield. A punishing tackler who finishes his plays.
Flaws: A true 3-4 defender (more limited in a 4-3 system). Is a little small and under-skilled to play effectively at any other position than nose tackle along the line. Not a tackling machine.
Career Potential: Quality interior defensive lineman.
