Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Has good footwork and technique. Balanced and agile pass protection set with excellent hand placement.
  • Quick feet to get inside of defensive tackles to wall off inside and reach linebackers at the second level.
  • Quick-footed with smooth movement skills to cover a large area. Rangy with above average lateral ability. Bursts off the snap and sets up quickly with little wasted motion.
  • Best asset is his strength and disposition as a run blocker. Gives a strong initial punch. Plays with good leverage bends at the knees and sees what he's hitting, showing the ability to roll his hips into the defender and drive him off the line of scrimmage.
  • Has the feet to adjust when he anticipates what's coming. Effective trapping and bends at the knees with adequate core strength to absorb the bull rush. Can clear a path at the second level if he hits the target.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Oversteps on his kick-side, allowing too wide of a lane back inside for pass rushers able to re-direct quickly. Has more power than quickness, struggles to re-direct and hit the moving target. Lunges too often, leading to flailing missed blocks.
  • Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
