Strengths

Positives: Good height with strong upper- and lower-body builds. Strong anchor; typically does not get pushed into quarterback. Gets his hands inside his man's jersey quickly and resets his hands to sustain. Picks up twists from the inside. Fires out of his stance on zone run and short-yardage plays. Will hustle to help quarterback when the play breaks down. Adequate moving in space; can reach linebackers and even safeties at the third level. Strong enough to block down on the tackle but use his right arm to prevent linebackers from blitzing between guard-tackle gap. Negatives: Agility might be tested against NFL defensive tackles. Recovery speed is lacking against quick spin moves. Must use a stronger initial punch in pass protection. Plays with high pads at times; must bend his knees to prevent losing the leverage battle. Will overextend when one-on-one against a strong tackle. Does not always pick up his first inside target when on the move.
