Strengths

Height and extreme length are prototypical for the tackle position, and his foot quickness when in balance makes it very difficult for even the best sack-masters to get the corner. Thick arms that portend his upper-body strength, and also owns enough flexibility and girth in his lower half to anchor against bull rushes. Occasionally asked to go out to linebackers, shows agility to fit onto the block and uses his long arms to shield them from the play ? though he can be out-quicked by second-level defenders and doesn?t always sustain. His strength and quickness helps him as a zone run blocker, as well.

Weaknesses

Tech?s scheme usually has their linemen moving backwards off the snap, must work on coming hard and low off a three-point stance for the run game. Gives up too much room when backing into pass protection at times, needs his get his hands up and onto defensive ends more quickly to prevent them from getting theirs into his numbers to push him into the quarterback. Loses his kick-slide and get on his heels on some plays, failing to get the needed depth and giving up the corner. Could have a deadly punch if attacking his man instead of catching him.
