Good combination of size and speed. Played in-line, as H-back and from slot/bunch sets. Expected to run somewhere in the 4.6s. Tall with high-point ability. Athletic ability suddenly clicks after the catch. Bursts to accelerate away from trailing tacklers with ability to elude oncoming traffic. Showed willingness to try and leap up and over Georgia defender after the catch. Plus body control allows for stickier blocking through contact. Athletic feet to adjust and mirror to second-level movement. Ability to recover and reconnect when beaten early as in-line blocker.


Gets jammed into route and allows defenders to ride him down the field. Poor route adjustments in space. Content to be guarded and creates his own contested catches. Needs to unleash play speed in routes and acceleration out of his breaks. Hasn't learned to widen frame and defend his catch space. Struggles to finish contested catches. Needs more consistent aggression as run blocker. Relies on position over strain and grit. Leg drive as base blocker will need to improve on the next level.
