Lacks initial quickness off the snap, doesn’t have the range to reach speed off the edge and too often is forced to use his length in order to push defenders past the pocket. However, lunges into blocks consistently, doesn’t stay real balanced or compact with his footwork and struggles create much pop into contact. Isn’t a real velcro player and is easy to disengaged from.
Will wind up his arms when trying to reach speed off the edge, but when blocking down does a better job keeping his hands up. However, isn’t real compact with his punch. Elbows are often bowed outside his frame and doesn’t create much of a jolt. Plays too high to anchor vs. the bull rush in the NFL as he doesn’t display the ability to sink in the hips. Will get after it in the run game.
Plays with a mean streak, fires out of his two point stance quickly and extends his arms well. However, he comes off the ball high, doesn’t gain any leverage and his hand placement is high as well. Works hard to stay engaged, but isn’t overly coordinated through contact, doesn’t have the leverage to stick and quickly will fall off blocks. Looks limited on the move, really lumbers in space and isn’t a guy who can reach off his frame.
Impression: Lacks base strength through his lower half, doesn’t bend and isn’t an NFL caliber offensive tackle prospect."
