Strengths
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Combines strength and footwork to fill holes inside, as well. Recovers from cut blocks or falling on his way to make a tackle.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Surprising athletic ability for a player his size with rare movement skills. Explosive hitter and looks to wrap and drive the ballcarrier into the ground.
  • Strong, stout interior presence who often requires double team blocks to keep him from clogging running lanes. Short, thick legs and thick trunk which aid him in anchoring.
Weaknesses
  • He remains raw as a pass rusher and doesn't have the foot speed to chase down ballcarriers.
  • Lacks closing speed and inconsistent quickness off the snap prevents him from being an elite pass rusher.
  • Short arms could lead to problems against NFL-caliber offensive linemen with longer arms able to get into his chest.
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
  • Appears to have only average arm length, and ballcarriers too often are able to shield him with a stiff-arm.
