Has a solid build. Quick pedal — turns his feet over rapidly and is controlled and balanced in reverse. Smooth-hipped. Good football intelligence. Understands run fits. Comfortable in off-man coverage — maintains good cushion and keeps receivers in front of him. Nice shadow and mirror in man coverage. Respected team leader.
Average agility and long speed. Lacks strength in run support and could stand to be more aggressive filling. Tackles low. Not explosive. Nonchalant football-playing demeanor. Does not play with confidence or trigger quickly to what he sees. Average ball skills.
The Pundit of 49ersNews. I do what I can to supply the Niner fans with their fix.
