Strengths
  • Has the pursuit skills to stay in the action. Anticipates the snap. Country strong and very physical; seeks contact.
  • Flashes strength at the point of attack with active, violent hand use. Forceful with his upper body to defeat blocks. Strong hustle player.
  • He's not an elite pass rusher and projects as a left end in a 4-3 defense. If he layers on more muscle, he might fit in the 3-4. Size, strength and versatility should push him into the top 75 picks.
  • Challenges inside with quickness and strong hands. Run-and-chase defender who can leave a mark.
  • Easily gains inside leverage by shooting gaps.
Weaknesses
  • Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
  • Uncreative pass rusher who lacks counter moves. Raw technique. Streaky and slow to react.
  • Lacks overpowering strength and can stick to blocks. Lacks explosive speed to bend and flatten off the corner with stiff hips and ankles. Not flexible or fluid.
  • Has the initial burst off the snap but only phone-booth quickness overall and doesn't make as many plays behind the line of scrimmage as his ability to penetrate would indicate.
  • Never out of a play, but can get out of control and work himself away from the action.
