Overview

Jolly is an experienced lineman who has started 38 consecutive games at left tackle for the Tar Heels. He is a smart player that gets by with limited athleticism and foot quickness thanks to excellent technique and a good understanding of blocking angles and leverage. He is more of a mauler than an explosive hitter and often ends up leaning on opponents rather than jarring them off their base. He has very limited lateral range in pass protection and struggles when trying to react and recover against a good counter move when out on an island.


Strengths

Great height and bulk with a large frame. Prepares well and has textbook technique. Keeps good balance with a wide base, understands how to maintain leverage, and takes precise blocking angles. Plays with a mean streak and is consistent and durable.

Weaknesses

Jolly is limited athletically and does not possess adequate speed. Lacks foot quickness and may be exposed by more athletic defensive linemen. Struggles with blocking in space due to poor lateral agility and is susceptible to counter moves. Does not generate an explosive punch when blocking.

Grade

2.1
