Strengths
  • Comes off the snap quick, low and hard. Runs low and accelerates quickly.
  • Can seal the edge as an in-line blocker. Not an intimidator but has enough strength, leverage and a solid base.
  • Among his better attributes. Gains a quick, clean release and has enough speed to challenge deep.
  • Quickly secures and protects the ball. Tracks the ball well and adjusts to off-target throws.
  • Gets a quick release off the line. Dips his shoulder and shows some savvy 8 as a route runner to avoid contact with defenders g to get into his route.
  • Can effectively place a block on a pass rusher before starting route by sinking fluid hips and delivering a punch.
  • Seems to enjoy the physical confrontation of blocking. Is willing to attack bigger defenders with explosive pop and good strength.
  • Good quickness off the snap. Has good speed for the position to attack the seam. Shows burst out of his breaks to gain separation.
  • Has good hand-eye coordination and body control to turn and adjust to poorly thrown balls.
Weaknesses
  • Has a smallish frame with underwhelming power, lean arms and little muscle definition.
