Scouting Report: Strengths
Strengths
  • Quarterbacks and ballcarriers feel his strength when he plants them in the backfield.
  • Penetrates through gaps, often forcing running backs to elude him or the back end of the offensive lineman he's pushing before they even reach the line.
  • Can make the impressive chest-to-chest bear hug tackle in the hole due to his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Delivers a strong punch and uses his hands to shed blocks to make plays in the hole or outside the box. Uses lower-body strength to anchor inside.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
Weaknesses
  • Plays too high at times, and gets carried downfield or put to the ground by better lineman when losing the leverage battle.
  • Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks.
