Is quick initially out of his stance, displays a natural, compact kick slide to the corner and can reach the speed rush off the edge. Does a nice job keeping his hands in front of him through his slide, but needs to hold them higher. Struggles to generate much of a “pop” into contact with his punch, more of a catcher who fails to routinely generate leverage for himself. Really struggles through contact.
Isn’t a real sticky player, doesn’t control blocks and his high pad level causes him to struggle mirroring through contact. Consistently gets overextended with his footwork when engaged causing him to fall off blocks. Will be a consistent threat to be overpowered vs. the bull rush in the NFL.
Looks natural on the move, is quick to get out of his stance and pull from the backside. Reaches his target quickly, breaks down well and consistently hits his man in space. However, isn’t real physical into contact, doesn’t eliminate his target initially and routinely fails to stick to the block. Isn’t a guy you’re going to run behind.
Gets upright off the ball, there’s no real snap/pop to his game into contact and can be stone walled when trying to move a defender off the football. Does a nice job sealing from the backside from an athletic standpoint, but again will fall off blocks when trying to stay engaged.
Impression: Will struggle with power in all aspects of the game at the next level and doesn’t look like an NFL-caliber lineman to me."
