PROS: Biggest strength is his ability to high point passes. With his frame and body control, he can pluck the ball out of the air above the rim. Additionally, tracks the football well and can haul in passes in stride using active hand positioning. Undoubtedly has the size and athleticism combination to be a threat in the redzone at the next level. Pretty sudden feet for his size, and moves laterally well considering the length in his legs. Works well to release outside and get vertical when given more of a free release at the line of scrimmage. As a blocker, he does an excellent job of latching onto defensive backs and beginning to drive them off the spot. Length in his arms makes him difficult to disengage from for smaller defensive backs. Physical player who doesn’t shy away from contact as a runner and blocker.
CONS: Lacks variation on his release moves, choosing to footfire with a slight inside nod on nearly every rep. Essentially no hand usage at the line of scrimmage results in him consistently getting jammed against press coverage. When able to release outside, his lack of hand usage still results in him being unable to hold the redline. Ridden out of the play and towards the sideline against more physical cornerbacks, gaining minimal ground off the line of scrimmage. Somewhat of an unnatural, crunched up stance limits his vertical explosiveness when given a free release. As a route runner, won’t consistently stack defensive backs when given the opportunity to, which can result in catchpoints being disrupted. While he is able to high point passes at a nice clip, there are issues with his possession of the ball with sometimes shaky hands and not tucking the football away from defensive backs. Not a natural route runner and can lack definition in cuts.
