Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Good play speed with the foot quickness to turn the corner and quickly change his path...physical and enjoys contact with very good raw strength...takes away the first man he sees, squaring his shoulders to his target and delivers a pop at the POA...some body fluidity to twist and block defenders off balance...takes pride in his blocking assignments and highly competitive to pancake defenders...hard-nosed to dig his cleats in the ground and sink his hips to anchor in pass pro.

WEAKNESSES: Lacks ideal muscle definition...gets too high as a lead blocker and needs to keep his pad level low...bad habit of grabbing and too often caught holding when attempting to finish...gets a tad wild in his movements and needs to stay under control...despite his top-notch effort, he doesn't always finish blocks...limited experience as a ballcarrier on offense with only 39 career touches (21 rushes, 18 catches)...needs to develop his awareness as a run blocker and in pass protection.
