Overview
Will need extensive film work to develop a running back's vision in order to become more accurate and effective as a lead blocker. His fearless playing style and soft hands are both positive traits in his conversion from linebacker to fullback, but he may be too far away from a true positional fit to make a team as a special teams demon.
Strengths
  • Plays like his hair is on fire at all times
  • Doesn't come off field as core special teamer
  • Impressive speed to get out in front of wide stretch plays
  • Has athletic tools to improve as a blocker
  • Showed better radar as blocker by South Carolina game
  • Soft hands out of the backfield
  • Able to add yards after catch
  • Stands in and gets after it in pass protection
Weaknesses
  • Instincts as lead blocker need a ton of improvement
  • Slow to process moving pieces and pick out his target
  • Play can be scattered and out-of-control
  • Poor gather and strike in open field
  • Struggles to adjust to moving targets
  • Lacks thump in the hole
  • Loses leverage with elevated pad level into contact
  • Doesn't bring feet under him at contact and bounces off blocks
