Pros: He displays very good reactive athleticism on the interior line for a young man with his size. Has very good length and power in his hands. Projects with excellent 2-gap ability that will be highly coveted for an odd front team. Does a good job disengaging, locating and pursuing the football. Very good defender vs the run and is excellent at the point of attack. Does a good job of getting his hands up in the passing game when he cannot generate a good rush. Displays good leadership in adversity over the course of the game.
Cons: Needs to be more consistent playing with good leverage. Can be pushed back when his pad level gets too high and is double teamed. 2 down linemen that lacks good 3rd down upside as a rusher. Doesn’t have great get off at the snap. More powerful than explosive. Needs to be better at using his hands as a rusher in the passing game. Could afford to develop a signature rush move.
