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.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
