Competitive and athletic. Bursts upfield from stance finding early separation in seam. Long stride into one-step cut to uncover underneath. Fluid and fast in intermediate and deep work. Runs leveraged, sharp routes and stacks tight coverage. Accelerates out of cuts and turns to separate. Intelligent use of frame to shield the catch point. Able to create late-catch space and secure with sticky hands. Above-average catch radius and secures through contact. Punches with crisp, inside hands as blocker. Runs feet through contact as move blocker. Sustains and finishes blocks when he gets locked in.


Narrow, athletic frame needs additional muscle mass. Can work away from zone defender to help quarterback. High-point attempts can be slightly mistimed. Gets in a big hurry as run blocker. Early over-step loses desired block centering. Comes in hot up to second-level targets. Needs better anticipation/adjustment to moving targets. Could struggle to maintain reasonable anchor in pass pro.
