Strong Points

Massive size, naturally strong. Can get movement with straight on drive blocks. Shows he can anchor in pass protection.

Weak Points

Speed, overall movement skills. Lacks good lateral agility and recovery. Struggles with wide speed. Feet will cross over. Doesn't adjust on the move well. Can have trouble making productive blocks at the second level.

The Way We See It

Huge man with strength but he is too heavy. If this young man can drop 30-to-40 pounds of bulk and add 10-to-15 pounds of muscle, we might see a completly different player. Right now he lacks the lateral agility to play tackle in the NFL. Struggles with wide speed and staying with opponent with a counter move. Not very quick footed. Has to move inside where he has help on both sides. Can be a good drive blocker, but to get on the field he needs to drop the weight I talked about and improve his agility. At this time, he is no better than a backup. We'll have to see how hard he wants to work to remake himself into an NFL player.
