Strengths

Powerful frame with dense, muscular lower body. Very powerful at point of attack -- especially as base blocker. Held his own in the power department against UCLA?s Kenny Clark. If he gets downhill momentum on defender, it?s lights out. Able to strike and center his blocks between his shoulders. Team captain. Very good hand placement, upper body strength and hip torque to steer and turn opponent on hook blocks. Generates good power from legs and hips. Block winner in tight space near goal line. Takes good angles to second level block to make up for his lack of athleticism. Hard to beat him early in the rep on run plays. Can bury gap shooters with cave­-in blocks. Comes out of stance with good bend, pad level explosion into target. Has power and hand strength to snap off twisters and receive incoming defender. Well schooled with good hand work.

Weaknesses

Despite being asked to pull and get cut-­off blocks at Stanford, he has some athletic limitations that could be magnified in pros. Slow to get out in front on long pulls. Gets a little lazy with his feet and tries to outmuscle opponents rather than combining strength with proper footwork. Falls in love with mashing opponents within the early stages of a rep and forgets to bring his feet under him to secure the block causing him to fall off at times. Head­-ducking pass protector who misses twists at times because he sees them too late. Opens himself up to problems against crafty defensive tackles by leaning too much in protection. More of a hug and contain approach against rushers rather than inside punch.
