Analysis

Strengths

Understands angles and positioning. Can shuffle, slide and mirror defenders in pass protection. Good football intelligence and work habits. Plays hard and competes. The game is important to him. Versatile.

Weaknesses

Small-framed with marginal arm length and a narrow base. Average athlete. Sets tall. Not strong or explosive at the point of attack to move defenders. Is late to reach and cut off defenders. Spends too much time on the ground. Overwhelmed by Minnesota DL Ra'shede Hageman. Only a one-year starter.

Bottom Line

Raw, light-framed zone blocker ideally suited for a role as a swing interior backup in a slide-movement protection scheme. Has the smarts and versatility to battle for a roster spot.
