Wore No. 106 at HUB Football Camp (9/28/21). High motor player with top-notch speed and quickness. Possesses a true nose for the ball; constantly shows up in the swarm. Showcases the ability to cover running backs and tight ends effectively. Demonstrated soft hands during positional drills; a testament to his active hands (five career interceptions in college). Played in 4-2-5 defense at New Hampshire; has experience at MIKE, WILL, rover and safety, also played all four special teams units. Could work to improve flexibility, to help boost lateral movement/change of direction. Is a bit aggressive in pass coverage and can tend to get beat on occasion. Has adequate strength but has been working to enhance his size and power. Very coachable and communicates well on the field during pre-snap. Recently moved back to Boston area (Logan International Airport). Currently training using the westside barbell conjugate method, plus four days of field work and three days of speed and agility each week. Is in great condition and could provide an immediate boost on special teams, while adding depth at multiple linebacker positions.
