Has the agility, technique, and size to contribute early in his professional career. Quick, active hands to latch on to defenders.
Quick feet to get inside of defensive tackles to wall off inside and reach linebackers at the second level.
Eases out of his stance and has a finisher's mentality. Bends his knees, has above-average mobility and keeps his base square to adjust to counters.
A smooth athlete with terrific mobility and footwork, staying light on his feet. Has the lateral range, natural shuffle movements, and lower body quickness to mirror speed rushers.
Solid positional run blocker who flashes the nasty demeanor and killer instinct scouts covet.
Struggles to be consistent blocking in motion and doesn't have the natural foot quickness to cover a lot of ground.
Will punch at smaller defenders instead of latching on and is more of a mauler than mover in the running game. Can improve maintaining outside leverage when doubling the nose. Ducks his head and gets too upright, causing him to fall off second-level blocks.
Needs to prove his worth in a straight-ahead running game.
Needs to work on his technique in pass protection, using more consistent leverage and continuing to move his feet.
Not physically imposing and has average overall strength. Upper body gets over his feet too often and he easily loses his balance.
