Strengths
  • Flashes an explosive burst and can surprise better overall athletes with his ability to get upfield. Has a closing burst when given a free lane. Has the frame to consider moving inside
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Good weight-room strength, which translates onto the field in terms of his anchor.
  • Quick footed with rare burst for his size. Very good quickness off the snap to split defenders and penetrate the pocket.
  • Provides some secondary interior pass rush, getting most penetration when playing three technique.
Weaknesses
  • Inconsistent in his ability to separate from blocks, however, making him more of a nuisance than a snap-to-snap terror.
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole.
  • Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks.
  • Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
  • Sees the ball well but is stuck on blocks when head-up; does not shed to make plays often enough.
