Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Cann has the square-ish frame so condusive to playing inside. Impressive mix of athleticism and power, with a flexible lower body and generating power through his hips, midsection and hands to latch-and-grip with excellent technique.

He bursts out of his stance and quickly gets into position, showing instinctive eyes to know what's happening around him while extending his reach to keep space between himself and his target. He has excellent knee bend and good core flexibility and power to absorb bull rushes and often is able to drive opponents off the ball because of his strength and leverage advantage.

He's alert to stunts and blitzes and can knock defenders down with a powerful punch.

Cann is well respected for his work ethic and leadership and was voted a permanent team captain in 2013.

WEAKNESSES: Cann is best suited to a power-scheme as he does not possess ideal initial agility or straight-line speed for a zone-blocking scheme. Can better improve his momentum on the move to properly win angles and break down in motion.

He lumbers rather than springs off the snap and struggles to beat secondary defenders to the action. If beaten initially, Cann does not possess the quickness to recover.

--Rob Rang (9/5/14)

Player Overview
