Is an above-average blocker in both the run and pass game. Does a nice job extending his long arms, maintaining leverage and pumping his feet through contact. However, isn't real athletically gifted in space, doesn't look comfortable when asked to sit into his stance and fails to generate a great burst off the ball.
Looks heavy footed when asked to slide through contact, even at the college level, and struggles to quickly reach targets off his frame. Has the type of size and natural power to get away with it at the college level, but will struggles athletically to hold up in the NFL.
Impression: A big, physical tight end who lacks the athleticism needed to consistently get into/stick to blocks through the play at the next level."
