Lacks ideal explosion off the snap as well and too often can be driven backward off the ball and down the field vs. a power run game. When he is able to anchor vs. weaker OT prospects, doesn't showcases the suddenness/violence with his arms to disengage and make plays off his frame.
Is a limited pass rusher, doesn't possess the burst to be a threat with his first step. Gets upright into contact and is too often stonewalled despite his motor and passion for the game. Gets upright through contact and eventually can be out leveraged and blocked out.
Struggles with balance, ends up on the ground too often and lacks the lateral quickness to slip blocks/disengage through contact as a pass rusher.
Impression: A good looking kid, but struggles to play low and doesn't have the kind of anchor his size would indicate on the edge."
Low-based player with good leg drive has the size and strength to take on double teams at the point of attack, although could do a better job getting off bocks; also has decent lateral range, but doesn’t always find the ball;
Good pass rusher with 12.5 career sacks including 5.5 last fall; can get into a gap with a quick first step and decent closing speed for a 300-pounder."
