Negatives … Is a little thin jointed in his upper body, but his frame has the potential to add more growth. … Has exceptional quickness and good leg drive, but needs to put forth the extra hours in the weight room to increase his upper body strength. … Gets a bit straight-legged, at times, resulting in him having some problems with twists, but he can recoil and recover. … When he gets too straight-legged, he will get off-balance, but he has the leg strength to anchor and hold his ground at the point of attack. … Places his hands well, but doesn't do it with much violence. … Needs to add lower body strength, as he's a bit top-heavy and can be rocked back on his heels by a strong bull rush. … When he narrows his base, he has problems sustaining and driving through blocks and struggles to anchor vs. the pass rush.
