Strengths
  • Has the ability to create a pile in the middle, even showing the ability to split the occasional double-team. However, is just as often blown off the ball due to his high pad level.
  • Surprising initial quickness off the snap. Relies mostly on a simple bull rush at this point, which is quite effective in collapsing the pocket.
  • Good strength and balance to sit down, lock-out and create a pile, leading to possibilities inside and out (in the 3-4).
  • Can make the impressive chest-to-chest bear hug tackle in the hole due to his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield.
  • Played with good leverage, even on the nose, despite average bulk. Hustle defender with a good bull rush inside that can close and get home when quarterbacks leave the pocket.
Weaknesses
  • Doesn't play fundamentally sound and lacks much technique in his repertoire.
  • Needs to do a better job of being the aggressor and tossing blockers aside.
  • Plays upright and struggles with leverage. Too often stonewalled at the line and doesn't show the hand strength or technique to shed or redirect blockers.
  • Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks.
  • Needs to keep his pad level low; pops upright and plays too tall, struggling to maintain leverage off the snap.
