Surely that isn't something that's been in his scouting report since coming out of college right? That was just added in the last few years? Like he's starting his dive too early & isn't closing that gap as fast as he used to.
This does make sense if you're trying to protect your hips. Diving with or without making contact puts very little direct stress on the hips. When you hit an offensive players and try to wrap him up, you are usually putting a great deal of stress and torque on the hips.........under a great mass of resistance.
