Positives: Flashes initial quickness off the snap. ... Locates the football quickly and has the short-area burst to close. ... Has the upper-body strength and is effective enough with his hands to rip off his man and pressure the quarterback or corral backs in the hole. ... Short, squatty build with long arms that helps him hold up against double-team blocks and in short-yardage situations due to his natural leverage advantage. ... Good lower-body strength to push the pocket. ... Uses his hands to get off blocks up front to get to the ball. ... Hustles downfield and chases down the line to help his teammates. Negatives: Too short and lacks the girth to fit some defensive systems. ... Must prove himself quick enough to beat NFL interior linemen one-on-one. ... Impressive statistics inflated by the aggressive blitzing and stunting Georgia Tech defensive philosophy. ... Seems to guess at the snap count often, leading to instances when he's the first lineman off the ball, and others where he's the last. ... Lacks a variety of moves as a pass rusher.
