However, keeps his feet too far under him, taking away from his ability to really fire off the football in the run game. Seems to really roll his hips into contact, gets upright and is more of a step and seal guy who struggles to stick at the point. Does have some good short-area quickness off the line, can seal defenders off his frame when reaching blocking. However, gets overextended, his weight is too often on his toes and can be shed easily through the play.
Looks tight hipped when trying to sit into his base in pass protection. Tries to bend, but struggles to really keep his butt down and anchor. Doesn’t possess ideal natural power in his lower half, is more of a catcher and lacks the lateral ability to slide through contact.
Seems content to lunge into defenders once he loses a step and try to simply push them past the pocket. Isn’t going to hold up consistently in pass protection vs. backers in the NFL. Isn’t much of a pass-catching threat either. Had only five catches in 2010. Isn’t a real explosive athlete in space or tight areas and doesn’t strike me as the caliber of athlete capable of separating in the NFL.
Impression: A big body who needs to win on the line as an in-line guy. However, isn’t as powerful as his frame would suggest and doesn’t warrant a pick in my view."
