Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Quick footed pass rusher with loose hips and good change of direction skills, moving very well for his size.
  • Quick footed with rare burst for his size. Very good quickness off the snap to split defenders and penetrate the pocket.
  • Agile run-stopper at end, extends to grab backs from the backside and possesses foot quickness and hustle to chase plays downfield. or to the sideline.
  • 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.
  • Played with good leverage, even on the nose, despite average bulk. Hustle defender with a good bull rush inside that can close and get home when quarterbacks leave the pocket.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Plays upright and struggles with leverage. Too often stonewalled at the line and doesn't show the hand strength or technique to shed or redirect blockers.
  • Average athletically with average straight line speed and tight hips. Not a natural bender. Lacks secondary pass-rush moves.
