Scouting Report: Strengths
  • A coordinated athlete and tough player to tackle, running with low pad level. Has good body thickness and strength.
  • Looks to get involved downfield and will block multiple defenders on a single play when he can. Understands his role as a blocker.
  • Knee-bend and technique are good and he shows decent power when his hands hit the target.
  • Quickly secures and protects the ball. Tracks the ball well and adjusts to off-target throws.
  • Good effort at the point of attack and second level as a blocker. Intelligent and will quickly acclimate to an NFL offense.
  • Good strength and effort to run through arm tackles.
  • Catches well in traffic, shields the ball from defenders with his frame, and holds on despite being hit. Will fully extend, snatch, and stay in bounds.
  • Comes off the snap quick, low and hard. Runs low and accelerates quickly.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • A glider, moves faster than he appears but lacks the top-end speed to be a real threat down the seam.
  • High cut frame and limited power in hands prevent a top blocking grade.
