  • 6'2" Height
  • 32" Arm Length
  • 301LBS. Weight
  • 9 1/2" Hands



Very good quickness, agility and balance. Gets into blocks quickly and keeps battling through the whistle (see fourth play of second quarter vs. Bethune when loses helmet). Runs his feet on contact. Good lower-body power. Can wall off and seal short areas. Efficient working up a level. Solid anchor in pass protection.


Average arm length and overall athletic ability. Could do a better job gauging his power on the move and connecting with moving targets.

Draft Projection

Rounds 5-6

Bottom Line

A compactly built, light-footed pivot who elevated his draft standing after clocking sub-5.0 40 times at his pro-day workout. Has the size, power and agility to eventually compete for a starting job.
