Lacks the ability to generate a snap through his hips, gain leverage and drive defenders as an in-line guy. However, understands angles, steps and seals quickly and works hard to stick to blocks. Nevertheless, lacks ideal power, struggles to stick to bigger defenders and can be rag-dolled/overwhelmed because of his lacking pad level/base strength. Isn’t overly coordinated in space as well, displays solid range, but struggles to breakdown.
Gets upright and rolls his momentum off the line of scrimmage when asked to play from a three point stance. Looks tighter in the hips when trying to slip the bump off the line, doesn’t have an explosive first step and is more of a strider. Doesn’t have a real suddenness/explosive element to his game when trying to separate vs. man coverage.
Does a better job finding soft spots in zone coverage, snapping his head around and locating the football. Relies on his savvy in the pass game in order to get open because the natural athletic qualities simply aren’t there for him to make plays routinely vs. man in the NFL. Exhibits solid hands and secures the football well over the middle of the field. Can pluck off his frame, but looks more comfortable trapping the football against his body in traffic.
Impression: Doesn’t offer enough in either the run or pass game to warrant an NFL roster spot."
