Strengths
  • Lower than offensive lineman on every short-yardage play. Good agility and ability to change direction for his size.
  • 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.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Rarely goes to the ground, showing good balance from his high school wrestling days.
Weaknesses
  • He struggles with leverage off the snap and plays too tall, limiting his effectiveness as a pass rusher.
  • Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
  • Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks.
  • Might be limited to one-gap systems. Agility isn't a question but misses tackles when he doesn't square and break down.
