The Way We See It

Former junior college transfer who is a two-year starter for Alabama. Lines up at both nose tackle and defensive tackle. Usually plays inside but will get some snaps at the 5-technique. He is big, strong and powerful and a very good run-down player. He is quick to find the ball, has good anticipation and makes plays in the run game. Lacks the speed, top quickness and burst to be a top pass rusher but he can provide inside pressure. The type that is good at pushing the pocket. Can play in a 3- or 4-man front and will start as a rookie. Unless he develops his pass-rush technique, he will be limited to being a run-down player.
