Reminds Us Of

Tavon Wilson Detroit Lions

Has put a lot of time in the weight room and enters college as a thick, muscular prospect ready to compete at the Power 5 level. Aggressive and attacks the football with effort and closing speed. Shoots gap on blitzes well, loves contact, and will take on blockers and win with explosiveness and strength. Takes great angles to the football and is a very sure wrap-up tackler. Hard worker and an intangibles kid who can be the leader of a defense. More comfortable straight ahead right now than he is when asked to backpedal and cover man to man. Has the size and speed to match-up on tight ends and backs in the passing game, but must continue to work on technique and fluidity to be able to handle the better athletes at those positions if that is what he is asked to do. Should make a lot of tackles in college and be an asset against the run and on special teams. Projects as a hybrid safety-linebacker who can play in the box and did a lot of that his senior year in high school.
