Overview

Sherman is a stout fullback that does not have the strength to be a lead blocker at the next level. He is a fierce competitor that flashes a mean streak and looks to punish opponents. However, he is not explosive at the point of attack and does not generate a consistent push in the running game. He is not a natural runner that lacks the vision to find space and the speed to exploit seams. He is a capable blocker in pass protection, but not a weapon in the passing game. Sherman looks to be a rookie free agent.


Strengths

Sherman has a very thick compact build. Keeps his head up and quickly locates who to hit. Plays with good leverage and delivers a powerful initial punch. Fights to the whistle and always finishes his blocks. High effort kid that is effective on special teams.

Weaknesses

Does not have the lower body strength to always push defenders out of the hole. Dips head and misses blocks at times. Lacks good vision and struggles to find running lanes. Does not consistently push the pile and will not always get yards after contact. Drops too many catchable passes.

Grade

4.0
