PROS: Effective block destruction with an array of hand usage and moves. Quick, active hands off the snap and has the tools to counter and work through multiple moves on each rep. Solid producer with decent burst. First step is solid, and able to fly upfield when necessary. Good on stunts and working through blockers.

CONS: Though his block shedding is elite, he will let offensive lineman get into his chest first and slow down his rush, He isn’t the most aware player, and will open gaps by penetrating too far upfield against the run. Too easily ridden upfield against the run. Struggles to beat reach blocks, and doesn’t take the most optimal paths in pursuit. Needs to do a better job of getting to depth then attacking the QB laterally, doesn’t take tight circles.
