College Combine Results
Strengths
  • More of a hustling pass rusher than an accomplished or natural one, he'll make his mark as a fifth or sixth defensive lineman.
  • Average quickness and power and his bull rush will be stonewalled. Comes off the snap high, losing leverage.
  • Excellent hustle-and-chase tackler. Good closing speed with change of direction to corral mobile quarterbacks.
  • His strength up and down the line of scrimmage, and quickness for his size, make him a mid- to late-round target.
  • Coordinated with smooth movement skills. High-effort rusher and works through the whistle. Relentless worker, fighting off blocks and battling to the ball.
Weaknesses
  • Average size, strength and lacks the bulk in his upper and lower body to hold up on the line. Not a sudden athlete.
  • Lacks the speed to turn the corner consistently and is too often washed out by stronghanded blockers.
  • Lacks ideal height, length and overall frame for the position. Short, doesn't have the chiseled body type ideal for the position.
  • Average size, strength and lacks the bulk in his upper and lower body to hold up on the line. Not a sudden athlete. Very ordinary flexibility and fluidity; not overly explosive and lacks the speed to threaten the edge. Plays upright with limited power to disengage _and is not overpowering in any aspect.
  • Not a quick-twitch player. Won't consistently threaten the edge. Few explosive qualities and lacks great initial burst or overall range for the position.
