Scouting Report
Assets: An all-round defensive dominator: elite as a sack artist, logs fantastic tackle totals, and gets his hands up in passing lanes. Freakishly athletic and exposive, yet also boasts superb size, intensity, and football smarts. Highly aware and a constant playmaker. A good ambassador for the game. Also very durable.
Flaws: Occasionally gets over-aggressive, leading to sometimes-unnecessary penalties for roughing and offsides. While great disrupting passing lanes he can do even more in the interception department.
Career Potential: Perennial Defensive Player of the Year candidate & likely future Hall of Famer.
