More of a straight-line athlete with some stiffness in his hips, lacking the smooth change of direction ability to quickly redirect. Slips off too many ballcarriers and needs to complete tackles -- will go for the big hit too often instead of consistently wrapping up.
Has some durability concerns after a shoulder and thumb injury hampered him in 2011 -- wore a cast on his left hand for part of his senior season. Has some minor character concerns after he was suspended for parts of two different games for separate violations of team rules.
Good find BB.
If he's getting knocked down or engulfed by college level O-linemen, then he'll get killed in the NFL.
2nd part sounds like a poor tackler. Granted that can be fixed but overall he sounds like a late round pick that makes the practice squad, maybe, and I'm looking for potential starters in the 2nd round.
