With the total of 208 tackles, 37 pass deflections, cover tight ends, cover slot receivers, able to play out wide and in the box shows the amount of potential he solely has as a player.
Before being scouted by the Eagles he has shown an immense amount of dedication to the game. While playing for Louisiana State University, he played the safety position against Alabama.
