Strengths
  • Penetrates through gaps, often forcing running backs to elude him or the back end of the offensive lineman he's pushing before they even reach the line.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Has the ability to create a pile in the middle, even showing the ability to split the occasional double-team. However, is just as often blown off the ball due to his high pad level.
  • Played with lean and leverage against the run, tough for one man to move (sometimes double-teams, too).
  • Can make the impressive chest-to-chest bear hug tackle in the hole due to his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to keep his pad level low; pops upright and plays too tall, struggling to maintain leverage off the snap.
  • He struggles with leverage off the snap and plays too tall, limiting his effectiveness as a pass rusher.
  • Lacks the speed to turn the corner consistently and is too often washed out by stronghanded blockers.
  • Doesn't play fundamentally sound and lacks much technique in his repertoire.
  • Plays too high at times, and gets carried downfield or put to the ground by better lineman when losing the leverage battle.
