Strengths

Former high school quarterback with high-end athletic ability. Knee-bender who is extremely smooth and fluid in pass sets. Plenty of quickness in slides to meet speed specialists at top of the rush arc. Mirrors to keep defenders in front of him like a defensive specialist in hoops. Attacks rushers with jabs and counters rather than predictable punch. Maintains posture while re-setting hands, which protects against counters. Locked down Auburn's edge rushers for most of the matchup. Operates with quickness and timing to thrive on second level as run blocker. Continues working hips and feet to gain positioning advantage after engagement. Plays with pad level and lateral speed to get to toughest backside blocks. Excellent potential as move blocker up to second level. Good job to steer and seal the edge for sweeps.

Weaknesses

Hand placement and hand strength needs a lot of work. Loses leverage and core strength with misplaced hands. Flailing outside hand carries no steam. Unable to generate push through leg drive due to lack of lower-body power. Gives ground when edge rushers double back into a bull rush. Will lean in his pass sets, looking for help to brace up. Needs to get hands off quicker and keep from giving away his chest. Needs to hit weights in order to add mass and weight. Lacks upper-body strength. Defaults to bear-hug mauling as base blocker.
