Strengths
  • Easily gains inside leverage by shooting gaps.
  • 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.
  • He wins with all-out hustle, second and third effort and will contribute in the NFL.
  • Flashes strength at the point of attack with active, violent hand use. Forceful with his upper body to defeat blocks. Strong hustle player.
  • Challenges inside with quickness and strong hands. Run-and-chase defender who can leave a mark.
Weaknesses
  • He doesn't have the elite quickness or flexibility to flatten off the edge against NFL blockers and might have to add bulk to be a 3-4 defense five-technique, or strong-side end in a 4-3.
  • Not an elite athlete with average functional strength and size. Lacks the length to fend off blocks and can be too energetic and lose his angle. Doesn't have a natural position at the next level.
  • Never out of a play, but can get out of control and work himself away from the action.
  • Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.
