Analysis

Strengths

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

Weaknesses

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.
