Stevens is a high-motor kid. He plays the game with a lot of effort and energy. He also comes across on film as fairly heady player. He has adequate size and lacks the ideal height you would like, but carries decent bulk. He has a solid get-off. He is active with his hands and stays busy from snap to whistle trying to get to the ball. He can create some separation and does a solid job of being able to shed. He is best on the move and does an adequate job at the point of attack. He displays solid speed and pursues to the ball. Takes good angles and is a good wrap-up tackler. He is productive rushing the passer. Can make an up-field charge and will attack the outside shoulder. Displays the ability to use his hands and can counter inside. Will take some risks trying to beat his man. It is tough to not like Stevens. He plays hard and finds ways to get around the ball. You wish he had a little better size potential, but displays the ability to be a solid defender at the college level.
