Displays a very average initial burst, isn’t a guy who can threaten the edge and lacks the power/leverage to create on his bull rush. Plays till the whistle and works hard in pursuit. Uses his long arms well to keep himself clean and can fend off blocks eventually. However, is linear/tight as a pass rusher.
Struggles to change directions off his outside rush, consistently has to catch himself in order to maintain balance and there’s no real explosive element to his game when trying to reach the quarterback. Gets upright as a run defender and gives opposing blockers a ton of area to get under his pad level.
Is consistently overwhelmed on contact and despite his work rate off his frame, can be easily sealed/blocked at the second level by smaller blockers who reach him down the line.
Impression: Possesses a good-looking frame, but doesn’t offer enough vs. either the run or pass game to make an NFL roster."
