Is tighter in the hips, lacks ideal lateral quickness/coordination and can’t win off the ball with his first step or counter laterally off it. Ends up on the ground far too often and is easily stonewalled on the bull rush because of his pad level. Does a decent job working his hands through contact, but doesn’t keep himself clean initially off the snap.
Plus, his hand placement is often too low and doesn’t create much of a surge on contact. Displays decent natural strength vs. the run game when playing either inside or out. However, is routinely waked off the football because he fails to gain leverage. Doesn’t have the suddenness/know how to shed blocks and routinely is sealed from the football. Doesn’t exhibit much in the form of closing range away from his frame. Lacks an initial burst in space and is slow to close.
Impression: A nice sized kid with the frame to intrigue either inside or out, just doesn’t have a NFL caliber athletic skill set."
