This injury is incredibly painful and would have affected his tackling and ability to bump receivers.
Not going to start making excuses .
He is an UNWILLING tackler .
He is a GREAT player but everyone has a flaw and his is tackling .
Ive watched college games for a long time Ive seen him play alot and he has never been a good tackler .
Doesn't mean he cant improve but his technique is terrible and he is borderline timid when it comes to contact .
In fact a good example of polar opposite would be Kirkpatrick from ALA .
He is a very physical tackler but not even close in coverage to what Mo is and can become .
