Overview

Positives … Rare-sized athlete with a muscular chest and shoulders, good bubble, thick legs and ankles … Best when working in the slot or in motion, as he has enough speed to run up the seam when he gets a rolling start … Runs with a normal stride, showing good balance with the ball in his hands and enough short area acceleration to separate … Takes well to hard coaching and also shows the ability to easily take the plays from the board to the field … Does an adequate job of finding the holes in the zone and settling down … Gets his head around quickly and shows the burst to turn a short pass into big extra yardage … Has large, natural hands, extending for the ball away from the body's frame … His above average flexibility makes him go either high or low to secure the ball … Uses his size, power and leaping ability to combat for the ball in traffic and will usually win most battles … Strong runner after the catch, showing the leg drive to power through tackles …

Very effective wall-off and seal-type of blocker, who will extend his arms and lock on to seal off the edge rush … Has made marked improvement of getting into the second level to deliver the cut block … Takes good angles to the ball and is very efficient at catching it over his shoulder.

Negatives … More quick than fast, lacking the second gear to be considered a vertical threat … Will flash some quickness off the snap, but is late off the ball, as it seems he needs to get a rolling start in order to gain acceleration … Relies too much on power rather than release moves and can be jammed in press coverage … The type that would be seen pushing off defenders in order to gain separation rather than one that can generate the speed to elude … Will occasionally get down the seam, but will not win any foot races vs. the safeties or linebackers at the second level … Despite adequate strength, he is more of a finesse blocker who fails to deliver much explosion coming off the snap … Gets bounced around when trying to work in-line … Gears down quite a bit in attempts to get in and out of his breaks and needs to show better crispness running routes … Although he has not missed any games due to injuries, he has had chronic right knee patella tendonitis that might need further medical evaluation.
