Strong Points

Two-and-a-half-year starter. Very good size. Plays with strength and power. Instinctive, quick to find the ball, seldom gets caught out of position. Not flashy but a steady player down after down. Has good hand use, can shed blocks and get to the ball in run game. Good at 2-gapping an OT. Consistently gets penetration. Solid pass rusher who can both bull rush or use moves. Competes and shows hustle in pursuit.

Weak Points

Good athlete but not really an explosive athlete. Plays outside at Michigan but has more of an inside player's skill set. Average initial quickness. Don't see a top closing burst off blocks.

The Way We See It

Fifth-year senior and a starter since midway through his redshirt sophomore year. A very steady workmanlike player. Not flashy; makes plays, not mistakes. Is solid vs. the run and pass and shows he can be a good inside pass rusher at the next level. Had 18 career sacks while at UM. Has good size and the frame to carry 315 without losing any of his athleticism. Excellent skill set to play as a 5-technique in a 3-4 scheme and should also be able to play either tackle spot in a 4-3. Solid second round type player.
