I think I look at it a bit differently. I think he has put such an emphasis on improving his defense and his d zone play, his play against the rush, and his aggression level in our zone, that it has detracted from him being offensive minded.

So in my mind, he's overthinking defense too much and it is hindering him from thinking about picking better spots with regards to joining the rush and playing a simple offensive game overall.

I'd like to see him just play. Stop overthinking the defensive aspect, simplify it and get back to basics. Use the natural talent he has to be a steady presence in the d zone. Tone it down and put mental emphasis elsewhere.
