Height: 6-5 Weight: 325 lbs
Position rank: #120
Overall Rating: 48.0/100
San Francisco 49ers Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 2 - Pick Number: 48 (SF)
Strengths
  • Has the feet to adjust when he anticipates what's coming. Effective trapping and bends at the knees with adequate core strength to absorb the bull rush. Can clear a path at the second level if he hits the target.
  • Dips shoulder and moves his feet to get outside leverage when needed. Strong and low coming out of his stance, effective in short-yardage situations.
  • Solid positional run blocker who flashes the nasty demeanor and killer instinct scouts covet.
  • Attacks his man, playing with a wide base and the lateral agility to mirror, sustain and shuffle to help inside. Has the size, strength and quick feet to be effective as a position run-blocker.
  • Big athlete with good bulk and a filled-out frame. Stays balanced and doesn't overextend in pass protection. Stays disciplined with good bend and leverage.
Weaknesses
  • Not an explosive athlete and has limited range. Will pop upright off the snap and needs to stay balanced, avoid the habit of lunging.
  • Drops his head too often on contact, which causes problems against swim moves.
  • Susceptible to speed rushers. Has only average quickness off the snap and doesn't possess the acceleration or arm length to corral defenders once they cross his face.
  • Very raw technique, playing with inconsistent hand placement fails to sustain blocks.
  • Loses leverage battles and plays with high pad level. Can be late off the snap.
