He doesn't waste much motion getting into contact and can be powerful uncoiling off the ball but isn't the most heavy handed of guys and doesn't stick as well as his size would indicate. Despite that, he has the power, bend and snap to mature into a very solid NFL blocker in the run game.
He looks natural getting out to the second level, is coordinated on the move and takes good angles. Again, he struggles to stick through the play, but really snaps through the hips into contact and is compact with his punch.
Is clean getting out of his stance in the pass game, but , is just a real average athlete without much of a burst to his game and no second gear when trying outpace defenders down the field. He is going to have a tough time creating separation vs. man.
He does a great job snatching the football away from his frame and can make a play on the throw even when covered, using his big frame to box out while looking natural snatching the football and extending away from his frame.
However, he doesn't play real quick even in tight areas and relies more so on his ability to set up routes, change speed and than accelerate away from his defender. Has a feel of where to sit down in zone coverage, and seals himself well blocking off the line before slipping out into the pass game.
Impression: A former USC transfer who doesn't have a ton of production in the pass game. However, he's a natural bender who can win in the run game and is a coordinated pass catcher. Looks like a potential late round/free agent pick who could stick as a reserve short yardage guy."
Has marginal production and much to prove as a senior to earn a shot in the NFL."
Has excellent size and long arms; also is a willing, although not the most polished, blocker; has a nice release off the line of scrimmage, soft hands and can find the soft spot in coverage; will also make the tough grab in traffic, but isn’t very fast or explosive and is not a threat to stretch defenses; also not much of a danger after the catch."
