He's overwhelmed too often at the point of attack, acting like more of a catcher at the point who fails to extend his arms and can be washed out on contact. Lacks ideal balance as well, struggling to keep himself clean when fending off slide down blocks and ends up on the ground too often.
Showcases a good first step getting up the field and uses his hands decently when trying to shed blocks. Isn't dynamic laterally, but has some one gap ability.
Impression: Improved as a senior. Did a better job keeping his pad level down and using his quickness to get up the field. Could fight his way into an NFL rotation."
Does a nice job finding the ball and has some short-area quickness; can spin off blocks, but has limited lateral range and little in the way of closing speed; bull-rusher had 3 sacks last fall along with 5 others tackles for loss."
