Strong Points

Plays hard and competes. Grades out well. Has surprising bend for such a tall guy. Looks to sustain and finish. Good athlete who can move his feet. Shows he can mirror and anchor. Gets low with run blocks.

Weak Points

Not quite strong enough and he is not explosive. Can have some trouble in space at the second level adjusting to movement. Arms are short for his height (under 34"). Not nifty with his feet

The Way We See It

When I looked at this player's measurables, I didn't want to like him, but he surprised me on tape. More than held his own versus Texas A&M's Myles Garrett. In pass protection, he can set quickly, bend, slide and recover. He shows he can get low with his run blocks. While he isn't real nifty, he has adequate movement skills. He has to get stronger if he is ever going to be a starter in the NFL. Will be able to play on the right side and could surprise and be OK on the left.
