Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Strength gives ends a chance to twist inside and linebackers free lane to the passer on blitzes.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • Lower than offensive lineman on every short-yardage play. Good agility and ability to change direction for his size.
  • 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.
  • 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.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Needs to play more disciplined and control his aggression. Doesn't play with a relentless motor and needs to give consistent effort on every play.
  • Sees the ball well but is stuck on blocks when head-up; does not shed to make plays often enough.
