However, for the most part showcases good lateral ability in space and through contact. Uses his length well to extend his arms into defenders and keep himself clean. Lacks great lower body strength and I would like to see him get stronger. Can hide some of his deficiencies because of his ability to play with leverage and length. Doesn't generate a ton of power on contact and isn't real heavy handed but makes it difficult for defenders to get into his frame and bull him into the backfield. Possesses good balance and lateral quickness when asked to redirect, consistently is able to pick up blitzing linebackers and stunts inside and is tough to gain a step on after the initial burst.
Displays an average initial pop in the run game as an in-line guy and generates some leverage for himself, but isn't nearly as coordinated through contact as he is in the pass game. Tends to get his mass over his feet and too often ends up on the ground. Isn't a great athlete on the move, exhibits average range at best when asked to pull and too often struggles to break down and hit/seal a moving target.
Impression: Really came on as a senior and does a nice job in the pass game using his lateral ability to mirror through space/contact. Needs to improve his lower body power, which should help him block with more balance in the run game, but offers enough to fight for a roster spot."
