Film Room Notes: vs Arkansas, vs LSU

Strengths: Incredible athlete, speed, size and strength are all there – Moves very well laterally in the box – Excellent instincts lead him to the ball very quickly – Reads and reacts with speed – Drops into coverage well, sees routes as they happen in zone – Delivers hits with the best of them – Can shed blocks inside and make the tackle – Dynamic pass-rusher when asked to play on the edge – Best fit as a 3-4 SOLB, but can play 4-3 SLB, 3-4 ILB and even rush as a 4-3 DE in sub-packages.

Weaknesses: Not going to excel in man coverage, some stiffness in the hips – Durability is a concern – Will occasionally be over-aggressive – Not a sideline to sideline guy.
