Strengths
  • Lower than offensive lineman on every short-yardage play. Good agility and ability to change direction for his size.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Strength gives ends a chance to twist inside and linebackers free lane to the passer on blitzes.
  • 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.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
Weaknesses
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
  • Might be limited to one-gap systems. Agility isn't a question but misses tackles when he doesn't square and break down.
  • Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
  • He struggles with leverage off the snap and plays too tall, limiting his effectiveness as a pass rusher.
  • Does not test offensive linemen with quickness or strong initial punch.
