Positives: Versatile defender who operates as an end in LSU's base 4-3 alignment, but could also be moved inside as a 4-3 under (3-technique) tackle or as an end in the 3-4 alignment. ... Good team defender. ... Understands his containment responsibilities. ... Excellent size and strength to stack at the point of attack. ... Flashes the ability to shed blocks and make the play. ... Good initial quickness off the snap. ... Can pressure the tackle's outside shoulder and has the strength to push the blocker into the pocket toward the quarterback or use his hands to rip off the block. ... Gets his hands up in the passing lane. ... Good lateral quickness and hand technique to disengage from blocks and make the play. ... Hustles to chase ballcarriers downfield. Negatives: Bit of a "tweener" for 4-3 teams. ... Lacks a great burst upfield, closing speed and the repertoire of pass-rush moves to be a dynamic outside pass rusher. ... Marginal speed to close. ... Does not change direction quickly in the backfield to prevent quarterbacks stepping up or getting yards with their feet.
