PROS: Tough and tenacious player in the trenches. He plays with very good block temperament in the run game. He is a finisher that plays from snap to whistle. He displays very good upper body strength and gets good vertical push in the run game. He is good at locating and engaging at the second level. He also does a good job getting his body in the position to wall off defenders. In the passing game he is very good. He plays with good length on the perimeter. He does a good job getting his second step in the ground. He displays very good short set anchor and good lateral agility to redirect on a defenders inside move
CONS: He's missed significant time due to injury. So his availability could be an issue in the NFL. Not a great overall athlete. Doesn’t play with great bend on the perimeter. As a result, smaller speed rushers could be problematic for him on the edge. Lacks true positional flexibility.
