Analysis

Strengths

Plays with strength at the point of attack. Able to withstand and occupy double teams against the run. Disciplined rusher within his lane. Has some strength in his lower body and can get a bull rush going when he gets to an edge of the guard. Sure tackler who drives full force of his body into runners and will finish what he starts.

Weaknesses

Doesn't explode off ball and into the blocker with as much zeal and explosion as desired. Leads with head and hands in unison when striking blow against run block rather than hands first with arm extension behind it. Plays tall and lacks bend and leverage as pass rusher. Gets wired to pass block too long and is slow to win with his hands. Cut-block attempts find their mark against him and he ends up on the ground.

Round 6

Bottom Line

Space-eater who can eat blocks up but won't spit out much production. Is a liability as a pass rusher and might need to add more mass to lock in as a pure, two-gap nose who can help to keep linebackers clean.
