40 Time: 4.71
Grade: 3.59

BIO: Junior-eligible who started 10 games last season, totaling 49 tackles, one sack, 4 1/2 tackles for loss and two pass defenses. Started three games as a sophomore registering 44-0-1. Totaled three pass breakups and no INTs during the regular season the previous three years.

POSITIVES: Nice-sized linebacker best in the box. Breaks down well, disciplined and quick reading the action. Smooth changing direction, strong at the point of attack and easily holds his ground against opponents or defeats them getting up the field. Takes good angles to the action, wraps up tackling and shows adequate skills in zone coverage.

NEGATIVES: Lacks overall quickness and explosion, range and has only a short area burst of speed. Struggles in man-to-man pass coverage if placed over the tight end.

ANALYSIS: Nice athlete who's yet to pull it altogether on the football field and become a complete, productive linebacker.

PROJECTION: Late Fifth Round
