As a run blocker, he possesses the length and power to handle linebackers who line up over his face and has the lower body strength to drive them off the ball. However, although he is athletic enough to get his feet around defensive ends off the snap and seal, he lacks the base to consistently set the edge on the outside and is too often defeated on contact. Nevertheless, he does look natural getting out to the second level and sealing down the field.
In the pass game, he isn’t overly explosive off the snap and really seems to lumber as he’s asked to go further down the field. However, he does a nice job cleanly releasing off the line and has the body control and short-area quickness to create separation for himself out of his breaks. Exhibits clean footwork and good overall balance, which enables him to quickly get back up to speed when changing directions. And he gets his head around quickly and plucks the football well on all areas the field. Now, he isn’t a guy who will consistently create after the catch or make anyone miss, but he’s a load to bring down and will fight for additional yards. Displays a good overall feel in the pass game when asked to recognize zone coverages and consistently is able to find soft spots down in the red zone.
Impression: He lacks great power/pop as a run blocker vs. defensive linemen, but is a coordinated individual who, with some added girth, could mature into a low-end starter at the next level. But, I think I would like him a lot more as my number two tight end because he really isn’t dynamic in any area of the game."
