Finishes and doesn't quit; competitor with a positive attitude and leadership traits that coaches admire.
Has good footwork and technique. Balanced and agile pass protection set with excellent hand placement.
Quick feet to get inside of defensive tackles to wall off inside and reach linebackers at the second level.
Finds defenders with his hands immediately and gets feet moving to engage and sustain.
Quick out of his stance with the footwork to be effective in front of screens. Willing to get out in front of ballcarriers to take out defensive backs and linebackers.
Good upper-body strength but must improve his core strength. Better suited to a zone-blocking system because of his athleticism.
Stronger pass rushers can get under his pads and steer him aside.
Flashes the ability to move his man with his hands, but is not yet consistent in this area.
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.
Limits ability to mirror by leaning forward with his upper body and neglecting his lower body. Not strong enough and remains rough around the edges.
