Strengths
  • Lower than offensive lineman on every short-yardage play. Good agility and ability to change direction for his size.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • 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.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Rarely goes to the ground, showing good balance from his high school wrestling days.
Weaknesses
  • Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks.
  • Sees the ball well but is stuck on blocks when head-up; does not shed to make plays often enough.
  • Lacks the speed to turn the corner consistently and is too often washed out by stronghanded blockers.
  • 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.
