The former Alabama linebacker finished his rookie season with 74 tackles, one interception and a sack in 12 games and 11 starts. The Texans linebackers coach Chris Kiffin told KPRC 2 Houston he feels the Louisiana native looks poised to take the next step in the NFL.
“The range jumps off the tape,” Texans linebackers coach Chris Kiffin told KPRC 2. “The ability to cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time, he can accelerate. He’s very explosive I think for him it’s taking the next step in his game. He got the chance to play in a number of games as a rookie. So, now, really getting the new scheme learning it, I think he’s done a great job. Excited to work with him.”
