Good arm and body length. Can get initial positioning. Can bend, shuffle and slide in pass pro. Solid showing at the Shrine game.


Struggles to anchor and hold a charge. Spends too much time on the ground. Lacks the lower-body strength and power to move defenders off the ball. Plays too tall and does not sustain.

Draft Projection

Round 7-Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Underpowered, strength-deficient, hit-and-whiff pivot lacking consistency and athletic talent desired on the inside, yet has enough length and agility to fend for a job as a swing interior backup.
