Christopher Hinton DL Michigan Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Quarterbacks and ballcarriers feel his strength when he plants them in the backfield.
  • Flashes enough quickness off the snap to threaten gaps at three-technique, especially when slanting.
  • Looks the part with natural size and filledout frame with good body thickness.
  • 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.
Weaknesses
  • Plays upright and struggles with leverage. Too often stonewalled at the line and doesn't show the hand strength or technique to shed or redirect blockers.
  • Quick first step with fluid movements off the ball. Highly competitive and fierce, showing relentless effort to the pocket with a nonstop motor
  • Average athletically with average straight line speed and tight hips. Not a natural bender. Lacks secondary pass-rush moves.
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
  • Inconsistent in his ability to separate from blocks, however, making him more of a nuisance than a snap-to-snap terror.
