However, really gets upright off the ball, struggles to keep his base down and routinely gets doubled over at the waist in both the run and pass game. Doesn't do a great job extending his arms into blocks, either, and routinely gets his hands outside the shoulders of opposing blockers. However, has the type of length and suddenness through contact to fight his way off blocks and can accelerate quickly up the field.
Now isn't real technically sound or compact with his arms/hands, but his combination of length and athleticism really makes him tough to block through contact. Isn't much of a bull rush threat because of his lack of leverage and isn't real effective when lined-up inside vs. the run either. Was dismissed from the Clemson program in June due to violation of team rules.
Impression: A long, intriguing athlete who moves well for a guy his size. Plus, he has the frame to put on about 20 more pounds without batting an eye. Obviously there are some character concerns, but has some upside as a developmental five-technique."
