Fluid turning his hips to run with opponents, constantly positions himself to make a play on the ball, and has good hands. Physical throughout the action, has an aggressive nature, and works hard to defend passes. Displays skill in man coverage situations, reading receivers? eyes and getting his head back around to locate the pass in the air. Has good overall awareness. Tough and aggressive defending the run."

Negatives: Lacks great closing and recovery speed. Cannot drive out of his plant to the ball.

Analysis: "Hagg is a cognizant defender who consistently positions himself to make plays on the ball. He was very productive on the college level and would do well in a zone system at the next level, although his poor speed and limited quickness will be issues."
