Lacks the ability to routinely gain leverage at the point, dropping his head down into contact, bends at the waist and doesn't have the lower body strength to create and kind of pop off the ball.
Exhibits solid athleticism and works well in tight areas when trying to get around blocks and seal. However, he lacks the strength/length in his hands/arms to stick through contact + work his feet around blocks when engaged.
He exhibits good initial quickness of the snap in the pass game, and can reach defenders firing gaps off his frame. Keeps his head on a swivel, displays good awareness locating blocking linebackers quickly and has the lateral range to slide his feet and pick up.
However, he allows his pad level to again pop up on contact, bending over at the waist when trying to slide and anchor can routinely can be jolted off the ball and overwhelmed into the backfield.
Lacks the lower body strength/leverage to hold his own inside and ends up on the ground too often in the pass game trying to keep in the inside of the pocket cleanly vs. bigger/strong defenders.
Impression: Is a solid athlete with good awareness, but lacks the ability to play with the leverage needed to make up for his less than impressive power in his lower half."
