  • Great instincts and football IQ - always around the football
  • Versatility - can play inside or strong side
  • Excellent coverage awareness - 10 INTs during his last two seasons
  • Good tackler and big hitter
  • Leader and team player
  • Displayed overwhelming desire, work ethic, toughness and character as he overcame his cancer to return to the field in 2010

Weaknesses
