Exhibits good body control and length when asked to pluck a ball away from his frame, displaying good concentration through the play and can hang onto the throw through contact. Now, isn’t a real explosive athlete, more of a strider down the field who picks up speed as he goes and needs a couple steps in order to get going. But possesses average straight-line speed for a guy his size. He can, however, be a tough cover because of his frame and ability to adjust to the football. However, struggles to generate an initial burst out of his breaks and lacks ideal short-area body control and quickness when trying to separate.
Is a natural blocker in both the run and pass game. Exhibits good balance in his footwork and punch off the edge in pass pro and has the base and fluidity to slide and anchor vs. linebackers in blitz pick-up. Also, is very coordinated as a run blocker, keeps his base down into contact, can generate a good initial surge and has the balance to finish runs. Looks natural redirecting in tight areas, as well, helping to chip on a lineman inside before bouncing back outside to seal a defender.
Impression: Isn’t a real dynamic athlete or route runner and will have a tougher time separating vs. man at the next level. However, he has a big frame, is a coordinated pass catcher and can win for you as a blocker. Looks like a very solid No. 2-type NFL tight end who will play in the league for awhile."
