Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Good weight-room strength, which translates onto the field in terms of his anchor.
  • 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.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Strength gives ends a chance to twist inside and linebackers free lane to the passer on blitzes.
  • Flashes the strength to stack and shed, move down the line to chase running backs in either direction from inside.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
  • Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks.
