Positives: Good height, length and girth for his position. ... Better-than-expected straight-line speed and change-of-direction ability, able to sniff out and disrupt screen plays. ... Will chase plays downfield. ... Strong upfield rush, either up the shoulder of his defender or splitting double teams. ... Uses his long arms to wrap up in the open field or track down ballcarriers coming through the hole. ... Flashes violent hands, especially when his man retreats off the snap in passing situations. ... Active knocking down passes and blocking field goals because of his push, arm length and large hands. ... Keeps cut blocks off his knees. ... Athletic enough to quickly jump on loose balls and get down quickly in short-yardage situations. Negatives: Might be a nose tackle and three-technique "tweener." ... Not particularly explosive off the snap. ... Doesn't play as strong as his size would indicate and he will stand after the snap, giving up leverage. ... Needs to use his hands more consistently at the line to free himself to make plays or to bull rush his man into the pocket. ... Doesn't have many pass rush moves. ... Must be more consistent pressing after the initial pop.
