Strengths
  • Aggressive with good awareness to track the ball and attack. Tenacious, tough, competItIve and versatile.
  • Naturally explosive player with decent get-off speed. Balanced through contact and stout against double-teams. Tackles through the ball. Versatile and has the body type to play many roles.
  • Relentless and strong off the edge as a pass rusher when fresh. Gets under the pads of tackles to bull rush them into the backfield.
  • Flashes nimble feet to chase running backs and mobile quarterbacks to the sideline when lined up at end. Spins off blocks to get back into the play.
  • Sacks and pressures are product of hustle. Gives effort on every play. Holds the point with length and strong upper body.
Weaknesses
  • Not a natural bender and lacks fluid change-of-direction ability. Plays with inconsistent pad level and is often knocked backward off the snap.
  • Rarely the first player off the snap, even when lined up over the ball, but his length, effort and short-area quickness still pressures double teams and helps penetrate gaps.
  • Lean lower body - must improve core and leg strength. Suspect body flexibility and tight hips.
  • Uncreative pass rusher who lacks counter moves. Raw technique. Streaky and slow to react.
  • Doesn't change direction easily. Can be late off the snap.
