Strengths
  • Coordinated with smooth movement skills. High-effort rusher and works through the whistle. Relentless worker, fighting off blocks and battling to the ball.
  • Flashes upper-body strength to rip and has the punch to push through interior linemen on stunts and twists.
  • His strength up and down the line of scrimmage, and quickness for his size, make him a mid- to late-round target.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Average quickness and power and his bull rush will be stonewalled. Comes off the snap high, losing leverage.
  • Has a good feel for the game with the anticipation and instincts to survive despite average at best size for an NFL defensive end.
Weaknesses
  • Hands aren't strong or active enough to disengage consistently. Gets good push, but will not bull rush NFL tackles.
  • Has limited athleticism and range. Lacks natural explosion or first-step burst to consistently threaten the edge.
  • Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
  • Lacks ideal height, length and overall frame for the position. Short, doesn't have the chiseled body type ideal for the position.
