- Has fluid footwork to redirect, reverse momentum and close with a burst. Regularly first off the ball with good snap anticipation.
- Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
- Easily gains inside leverage by shooting gaps.
- Relentless and strong off the edge as a pass rusher when fresh. Gets under the pads of tackles to bull rush them into the backfield.
- Flashes strength at the point of attack with active, violent hand use. Forceful with his upper body to defeat blocks. Strong hustle player.
- Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
- Average athletically with average straight line speed and tight hips. Not a natural bender. Lacks secondary pass-rush moves.
- Doesn't change direction easily. Can be late off the snap.
- Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
- Never out of a play, but can get out of control and work himself away from the action.
