  • Can effectively place a block on a pass rusher before starting route by sinking fluid hips and delivering a punch.
  • Has the burst off the snap to be split out wide in the NFL
  • Has hands of glue, about as good as you 'll see in the sport.
  • Good body control to reach back for the pass behind him. High-points passes and has good vertical, timing and hand-eye coordination in jump-ball situations.
  • Looks to get involved downfield and will block multiple defenders on a single play when he can. Understands his role as a blocker.
  • A coordinated athlete and tough player to tackle, running with low pad level. Has good body thickness and strength.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • High cut frame and limited power in hands prevent a top blocking grade.
  • Inconsistent with his release off the line of scrimmage.
