Analysis

Strengths

Good strength, balance and body control. Lines up in a flexible stance and engages quickly. Generally holds his ground. Has two-gap ability. Shoots his hands to stack, locate and shed. Can press his man and walk him back to cave the pocket. Moves very well for a big man, especially laterally -- can pick 'em up and put 'em down in chase mode. Senses screen. Strong wrap tackler. Has NFL bloodlines.

Weaknesses

Lacks ideal length and bulk -- can be locked up by larger blockers. Is not a quick-twitch, power player. Marginal sack production -- one-dimensional rusher who could stand to develop counter moves. What you see is what you get -- will be a 25-year-old rookie.

Bottom Line

Thick, stout, overaged defensive lineman with functional strength, awareness and competitiveness to provide depth and effective run defense. Is scheme-versatile, having played tackle and end in a hybrid front, and could be used as a 4-3 tackle or 3-4 five-technique. Good soldier.
