Scouting Report
Assets: A prolific, high-energy, monster tackler in the middle of the 'D' who brought great instensity, speed, and agility. Strong as a play-caller and leader on the defense. Smart and instinctive, and regularly made plays in pursuit. Could also win the edge against blockers and record the occasional sack.
Flaws: His lack of size at middle linebacker--combined with his high-energy style--led to a lack of durability. Had an attack-the-line mentality that sometimes saw him overplay the run, and led to some mistakes in coverage. Wasn't much of a pickoff threat.
Career Potential: Pro Bowl interior linebacker.
