In only his second NFL season, Atlanta Falcons S Keanu Neal has already established himself as one of the league’s hardest hitters.

On Sunday, the former Florida star quickly reaffirmed that status, delivering a huge hit to a Chicago Bears running back.

As you can see below, Neal absolutely stonewalls the back after he makes a catch over the middle:

Neal was Atlanta’s first-round pick (No. 17 overall) in last year’s draft and has certainly lived up to the hype so far.

As the Falcons try to make it back to the Super Bowl this season, Neal will be a big part of what should be an improved defensive unit.

Opponents should probably make sure they know where he is at when they’re going across the middle of the field.
