Strengths
  • Easily gains inside leverage by shooting gaps.
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
  • Challenges inside with quickness and strong hands. Run-and-chase defender who can leave a mark.
  • Offers some versatility, rushing from a two-and three-point stance with the playing speed to stand up in space. Flashes strength as a bull rusher and his energy doesn't plateau.
  • Has a quick burst off the line and times the snap well. Good upper-body strength and length to lock-out his opponent and at least moderate lateral agility to slide inside or spill out to contain.
Weaknesses
  • Lacks overpowering strength and can stick to blocks. Lacks explosive speed to bend and flatten off the corner with stiff hips and ankles. Not flexible or fluid.
  • Never out of a play, but can get out of control and work himself away from the action.
  • Uncreative pass rusher who lacks counter moves. Raw technique. Streaky and slow to react.
  • Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
  • Has the initial burst off the snap but only phone-booth quickness overall and doesn't make as many plays behind the line of scrimmage as his ability to penetrate would indicate.
