Seattle Seahawks Drafted: ROUND: 5 - Pick Number: 158 (SEA)
Strengths
  • He's not an elite pass rusher and projects as a left end in a 4-3 defense. If he layers on more muscle, he might fit in the 3-4. Size, strength and versatility should push him into the top 75 picks.
  • Vision to locate the ball and recognize cut blocks. Can rip past blockers and pull down ballcarriers when he cannot fully disengage from linemen.
  • Possesses accurate snap anticipation and timing to beat blockers off the edge.
  • Has fluid footwork to redirect, reverse momentum and close with a burst. Regularly first off the ball with good snap anticipation.
  • Good not great quickness and change of direction agility. Chases, using a long spin move to clear blocks. Low, strong off the line.
Weaknesses
  • Doesn't change direction easily. Can be late off the snap.
  • Lean lower body - must improve core and leg strength. Suspect body flexibility and tight hips.
  • Never out of a play, but can get out of control and work himself away from the action.
  • Rarely the first player off the snap, even when lined up over the ball, but his length, effort and short-area quickness still pressures double teams and helps penetrate gaps.
  • 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.
