Strengths
  • 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.
  • Delivers a strong punch and uses his hands to shed blocks to make plays in the hole or outside the box. Uses lower-body strength to anchor inside.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
  • His ability to clog running lanes, however, is a talent highly coveted in the NFL.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
Weaknesses
  • Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
  • He struggles with leverage off the snap and plays too tall, limiting his effectiveness as a pass rusher.
  • Lacks closing speed and inconsistent quickness off the snap prevents him from being an elite pass rusher.
  • He remains raw as a pass rusher and doesn't have the foot speed to chase down ballcarriers.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
