Run Blocking:
Strengths
  • Big athlete with good bulk and a filled-out frame. Stays balanced and doesn't overextend in pass protection. Stays disciplined with good bend and leverage.
  • Attacks his man, playing with a wide base and the lateral agility to mirror, sustain and shuffle to help inside. Has the size, strength and quick feet to be effective as a position run-blocker.
  • Has broad shoulders and flashes the playing strength and power to overwhelm at the point of attack.
  • Solid positional run blocker who flashes the nasty demeanor and killer instinct scouts covet.
  • Above-average football smarts and general intelligence. Plays with a nasty streak. Solid character and work ethic.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to work on his technique in pass protection, using more consistent leverage and continuing to move his feet.
  • Stops his feet after initial contact, relying on length but allowing defender to get the corner or spin inside.
  • Loses leverage battles and plays with high pad level. Can be late off the snap.
  • Finesse blocker with average arm length who doesn't use his hands well to win at the point of attack.
  • Susceptible to speed rushers. Has only average quickness off the snap and doesn't possess the acceleration or arm length to corral defenders once they cross his face.
