- Attacks his man, playing with a wide base and the lateral agility to mirror, sustain and shuffle to help inside. Has the size, strength and quick feet to be effective as a position run-blocker.
- Tall, long, athletic pass protector. Generally gets out of three-point stance with good knee bend and a wide base.
- Strong upper body, arms and hands. Coordinated feet with the flexibility for offensive tackle. Hard worker.
- Best on the outside because of his height and athleticism, but is capable of blocking on the move.
- Lone concern is handling the superquick NFL edge rusher. Foot speed and quickness are very good, but not elite.
- Heavy footed and lacks elite lateral ability- will struggle with speed rushers and footwork is a work in progress. Bends too much at the waist and overextends himself- often caught lunging and leaning.
- Struggles to be consistent blocking in motion and doesn't have the natural foot quickness to cover a lot of ground.
- Flashes the ability to move his man with his hands, but is not yet consistent in this area.
- Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
- Stops his feet after initial contact, relying on length but allowing defender to get the corner or spin inside.
