Strengths

Tall, long defensive end who plays both sides of the line. Third in rotation but gets plenty of snaps at either side and even on the interior on passing downs. More often than not, finds first contact through hands to chest and extended arms. Not locked into edge rushing, can use extension to press the pocket while engaged. Great motor, chases the quarterback to the sideline and turns to find the ball carrier on completed passes behind him. Sheds hands quickly when asked to spy and has the lateral speed to keep up with the running back in the flat. Very disciplined as a run defender and in playing the read option.

Weaknesses

First punch does not jolt and the placement can get too wide. Allows blocker to absorb and redirect rather than continuing and finishing the backwards momentum. The counter to finish the penetration is lacking. Don?t see the consistent shed to release, seems content to rush while engaged. Gets the push but not the shed and finish. No full-time starting experience.
