PROS: Squatty build offers initial leverage off the snap. Flashes multiple hand fighting wins on the inside to generate quick pressures: has a swim, a sick little spin move, and a club/rip that all land with a decent rate of success. Lots of power in his strikes, with a good sense of timing to marry handwork to footwork and clear his hips into a gap. Successful often on stunts and twists and provides versatility, lining up anywhere between the tackles and attacking C-gap to C-gap.
CONS: Uninspiring athlete who lacks length, agility, and explosiveness. Stubby at the point of attack and accordingly struggles to generate power rushes, which may also be a consequence of a bit of a tweener frame/lack of size - he is not the 300 pounds he’s listed. Insufficient quickness and explosiveness evident in many dead rushes that fail to disengage fully from opponent — lacks twitch to create space. There is some power there, but lack of length and average first step weaken bull rush profile. Washed by double teams regularly and has a poor tackle radius given inability to keep pads clean.
