- Possesses a long, lean, athletic body with plenty of room for additional muscle mass. Long arms.
- Best on the outside because of his height and athleticism, but is capable of blocking on the move.
- Finishes and doesn't quit; competitor with a positive attitude and leadership traits that coaches admire.
- Anchors against larger defenders in the middle; resets hands to maintain distance. Athletic enough to help on nose tackle then pick up twist or late blitzer. Mirrors quick interior rushers. Looks to help the center when uncovered.
- Has smooth lateral movement skills with good foot quickness. First off the snap and sets quickly. Aggressive and extends his arms into contact, delivering a sharp punch.
- Struggles to get low enough to maintain leverage. Won't be able to cut more agile NFL linemen because he's not sudden and gathers before lunging.
- Lacks lateral agility, flexibility and footwork to start on the outside in the NFL.
- A short-area blocker with limited range and doesn't consistently get to the second level. Will play undisciplined at times, especially in space. Lacks a finishing attitude.
- Not a natural knee-bender and gets too upright. Needs to play with better leverage and stay balanced through contact.
- 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.
