Isn’t real laterally sudden when asked to slip/disengage from blocks on through contact. Is at his best working the bull rush where he extends his arms, pumps his legs and can gain some leverage on contact. Isn’t overly physical through the play, gets a bit overextended and doesn’t show much in the way of slipping the block. However, does a nice job using his opponent’s momentum against him and pulling the rug out through contact.
Works hard vs. the run game. Lacks the size to routinely hold up inside vs. the double team and can be overwhelmed at the point. Comes off the ball on time for the most part, however, one-on-one seems to lose the leverage game too often.
I wouldn’t say he plays high, but routinely allows linemen to get under his pad level on contact and routinely takes an initial jolt inside. Does have some power in his hands when asked to shed, but isn’t a guy can routinely anchor/shed and make a play off his frame and his range is limited. Makes most of plays in pursuit on effort and tenacity.
Impression: An overachiever who doesn’t seem to have the skill set needed to win consistently in the run or pass game at the next level. Will have a tough time making a roster."
Plays hard, flashes a bull rush and is a good tackler, but is slow and stiff and cannot hold up vs. the double-team.
Smart, mature and grounded, but upside is limited."
