He has good play speed and tends to be in the right place to make plays. He has played the run well as a lineman and has been moved all around the line and linebacker positions in order to feature his skills. Further, he comes in with experience playing zone and man coverage, in addition to his special skills as a pass rusher that will be relied upon as he makes the moved to outside linebacker in the NFL.
