Conference: Gateway
Ht., Wt.: 6'0, 205
40 Time: 4.71
Grade: 3.02

BIO: Two-year starter who garnered All-Conference honors in the past. Finished his senior season with 91 tackles, nine tackles for loss and three sacks after 69-15-5 as a junior.

POSITIVES: Athletic prospect best making plays up the field. Breaks down well, stays on his feet and fights to make a play. Pursues to the flanks and quick filling the gaps, getting into the offensive backfield. Plays faster than his forty time.

NEGATIVES: Lacks the size for linebacker, speed for the defensive secondary and overall pass cover skills for either position.

ANALYSIS: Limited skills as a defender at the next level but mentality and tenacity give him a chance as a special teams player.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
