A fiery player who leads on the field, possesses a sideline-to-sideline motor and constantly shows up around the football. No quit. Has played every linebacker position in the Eagles hybrid scheme and has a high football IQ. He passionately aspires to be a coach after his playing days are over and makes it a priority to learn the defensive assignments of every position on defense. He has added bulk to his frame while maintaining his quickness. Has certainly proved capable of covering backs, slot receivers and tight ends—he completely shut down Florida State tight end Ryan Izzo in their 2017 matchup. Plays with a chip on his shoulder; word around the program is that he was very determined to prove FSU wrong by not offering him a scholarship, which is where he originally wanted to play being a Florida native. This player gets bumped up a notch when it comes to work ethic and coachability. While his height might be a detractor for some and could cause him to go undrafted, the odds of him making a 53-man roster are in his favor.
