    PROS: Admirably instinctual and developed player who is ready to contribute in Year 1 to an NFL team. Has some of the smartest feet and cleanest cuts in the class because of how closely he stays married to the ground and some surprising looseness in his hips when maintaining velocity through tough angles and generating a wide base. Has a great rhythm behind the line of scrimmage to help combo blocks develop and hit holes with explosiveness and timing. Devastating finisher in the second level with a bowling-ball frame and a great ability to discard the first tackler with physicality and strength. Contact balance is absolutely dumb at times, leading to crazy scramble plays when he survives contact nobody expects him to. Can string multiple moves together with good mental processing and enough quickness/smart, subtle redirections to force fast-closing tacklers into bad angles late. Is an active pass-catcher who shows a good ability to adjust to the football and seems to have longer arms than you'd expect for his frame. Pass protection frame and want-to are there, which lead to some quality reps, but is still inconsistent here.

    CONS: Patience and adherence to the rules of the play can get him in trouble at times. Works religiously on the front side reading bounce leverage even when he has the opportunity for a quick backside cut into space -- seems to almost want to earn his yards the hard way. Has sufficient wiggle to make closing safeties miss if he sees them early, but generally is not an elusive player and can get tackled around his feet accordingly. Especially struggles to gear down when pressing horizontally and is not a candidate for wide zone concepts accordingly. Burst is only solid and he can struggle to break into the third level accordingly, where his long speed is average -- is not a homerun hitter accordingly.
