Pros: Rangy athlete with the frame to add an additional 10-15 pounds of muscle mass. ... Instinctive defender. ... Always around the ball.
Cons: A classic "tweener." ... Lacks the bulk and experience at linebacker to warrant anything more than a late-round gamble.
Styg's Broncos Fit: Takes versatility to a whole new level, with kick returning, offensive rushing carries, rush LB duties and standard safety/corner coverage duties in his arsenal. His tremendous agility is at the heart of that, and as a late-round pick he is destined to be an underrated but consistently-productive player. He is able to effectively tap into his skills, and was called on often to bring an unusual spark to games. However, he doesn't have the overall talent to be asked to do any one thing consistently and productively. A smart player who needs a smart coach to take advantage of him.
Scouting Reports and Offsite Links:
- A tall, thickly built safety prospect with good read-and-react ability at the line of scrimmage. Showcases good closing speed toward the perimeter and breaks down well in space. Showcases flexible hips and the body control to redirect and get out of his breaks. Is a solid wrap-up tackler who explodes through the ball on contact. [see more...]
