Reminds Us Of

Channing Tindall Miami Dolphins

Tackle machine that floats around the second level looking for opportunities to shoot in and make stops. Has added some good mass since he first emerged on the recruiting scene as a freshman and is now believed to be hovering around 6-foot-2, 215 pounds with some additional length in the arms. Follows his blocking keys to the action and will meet ball carriers with plenty of force in the hole, usually unloading through the hips. Has proven to be an above-average athlete on passing downs that can drop back and cover up a zone. Projects as a potential multi-year starter and possible impact player at the Power Four level that can stuff the stat sheet and help slow down the run, like he did in high school where he racked up 114 stops as a junior in one of Florida’s larger classifications. Freelance play style can put him in some bad positions at times, but gap-closing speed and overall physicality could lead to plenty of success on Saturdays after a developmental year or two.
