Can make the impressive chest-to-chest bear hug tackle in the hole due to his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield.
Rarely goes to the ground, showing good balance from his high school wrestling days.
Coordinated with smooth movement skills. High-effort rusher and works through the whistle. Relentless worker, fighting off blocks and battling to the ball.
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.
Lower than offensive lineman on every short-yardage play. Good agility and ability to change direction for his size.
Hands could be much more violent when trying to gain control of the block. Does not hold his ground while facing a double-team; first instinct is to roll away to make a play, which can create a large hole.
Sees the ball well but is stuck on blocks when head-up; does not shed to make plays often enough.
Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.
Only adequate burst off the snap even when directly over the ball, and his initial pop leaves room to be desired.
Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks.
