Drafted: ROUND: 5 - Pick Number: 168 (CHI)
- A smooth mover and covers a lot of ground, working hard to mirror rushers; agile and keeps his feet moving.
- Tall, long, athletic pass protector. Generally gets out of three-point stance with good knee bend and a wide base.
- Solid positional run blocker who flashes the nasty demeanor and killer instinct scouts covet.
- Awareness is above-average for his limited experience. Sells trap block and can turn to seal. Fluid getting to and adjust at the second level.
- Above-average football smarts and general intelligence. Plays with a nasty streak. Solid character and work ethic.
- Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
- Stops his feet after initial contact, relying on length but allowing defender to get the corner or spin inside.
- Height can be a detriment in short-yardage, defender can get under his pads to hold the line.
- Too often is pushed back into the pocket during pass protection becaus~ he bends at the waist rather than at the knees. Relies more on precise angles than physicality in the running game.
- Not physically imposing and has average overall strength. Upper body gets over his feet too often and he easily loses his balance.
