Strengths
  • Lower than offensive lineman on every short-yardage play. Good agility and ability to change direction for his size.
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Combines strength and footwork to fill holes inside, as well. Recovers from cut blocks or falling on his way to make a tackle.
  • Can make the impressive chest-to-chest bear hug tackle in the hole due to his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield.
Weaknesses
  • Sees the ball well but is stuck on blocks when head-up; does not shed to make plays often enough.
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
  • Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
  • Might be limited to one-gap systems. Agility isn't a question but misses tackles when he doesn't square and break down.
  • 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.
