Strengths
  • Plays with appropriate wide base and intelligence, instincts and agility to seal the edge. Aggressive extending with power to punch and looks comfortable in space.
  • Above-average football smarts and general intelligence. Plays with a nasty streak. Solid character and work ethic.
  • Has the feet to adjust when he anticipates what's coming. Effective trapping and bends at the knees with adequate core strength to absorb the bull rush. Can clear a path at the second level if he hits the target.
  • Lone concern is handling the superquick NFL edge rusher. Foot speed and quickness are very good, but not elite.
  • Solid positional run blocker who flashes the nasty demeanor and killer instinct scouts covet.
Weaknesses
  • Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
  • Stops his feet after initial contact, relying on length but allowing defender to get the corner or spin inside.
  • Needs to work on his technique in pass protection, using more consistent leverage and continuing to move his feet.
  • Loses leverage battles and plays with high pad level. Can be late off the snap.
  • Susceptible to speed rushers. Has only average quickness off the snap and doesn't possess the acceleration or arm length to corral defenders once they cross his face.
