  • Awesome quickness
  • Amazing straight-line speed
  • Tackles hard and plays at a high intensity
  • A little bit stiff hipped and will miss his target if he goes full speed

  • Don’t think he’s as aware in zones
  • Can be a very good man coverage defender
  • Can carry seam receivers down the field
  • Team captain

Sam founded NFL Breakdowns after working his way through the journalist farm system and is enjoying life in the big league. Growing up outside of Washington, D.C., Sam didn’t choose the Redskins, the Redskins chose him. Out of a love for the game and an insatiable curiosity to determine why his beloved team was underperforming, Sam turned to studying film in NFL Breakdowns.
