Alert: I(INJURY) Coming off injury that may affect play.
He attacks the line of scrimmage vs. run. He uses his hands and plays with leverage. He can shed blockers and has good upper body strength. He has excellent overall athletic ability. He can change direction, has good body control, and ease of movement. He stays off the ground and plays with balance and agility. He has good instinct and is able to read and diagnose plays quickly. He has the speed and quickness to make plays form sideline to sideline. He takes good pursuit angles and is fast enough to catch plays from behind. He has an excellent motor and is around the ball. However, Arrington is overaggressive at times and gets himself out of position, creates running lanes by getting up the field too far or bites on play fakes. He is not effective as a pass rusher from a three point stance as he is from a two point stance. He takes a lot of chances and sometimes does not play in the defensive scheme and needs to be more disciplined.
We needs us a team player, not anudda discipline problem, y'know? I say, let's us go for Witherspoon.
