Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Joe is solid technically, with a good tactical sense. His defensive positioning was generally good, though he was caught by runners in behind at times. He had some trouble in 1v1 situations especially with pacier players. Technically solid and consistent playing out of the back. Showed good leadership with this group. Has the concentration to stay tuned into the gagme, thought he had trouble a couple of times with the speed of play.
